3 Reasons To See Dream Big At Michigan Science Center

We love watching documentaries with our son.  Especially when they are about things he is already passionate about.  I have found that a great movie in a theater that is also a documentary is the ideal way to reach him about things that are educational and fun.  So, when Michigan Science Center invited us to come view their latest Imax presentation of Dream Big, we knew it was a must!

We arrived on a busy Saturday morning to watch the presentation of Dream Big.  As always, the Michigan Science Center was busy but we quickly got our tickets and headed downstairs to the Imax theater.

3 Reasons To See Dream Big At Michigan Science Center 

  • Positive outlook on engineering as a career:  I loved how this film featured engineering as something that begins when you are a child.  It's not just a job or career, it is part of everyday life.  The overall theme of this film was to encourage everyone that engineering and the many aspects of that including architecture are careers anyone can succeed in if they set their mind to it.  
  • Encourages outreach in your community:  Another great concept throughout this film was that community outreach is important.  Not just as an adult, but also as children working together with others to make things better in the world around us.  This was a great reminder to our son who has been asking a lot about volunteering and helping others.  
  • Teach children that anyone, regardless of their situation, can succeed.  The biggest part of Dream Big is that anyone can succeed.  I love that everyone featured was just an average person or even someone who might have had challenges.  This is great for those who have children struggling with academics or other ways that may hinder their future success.  This was a great reminder that anyone can succeed. 
We really enjoyed this film, and are sure that it is a great idea to take kids to view.  While it is definitely family friendly, it is something that may be a bit difficult for younger children to understand.  I feel the best age group for this is 5 years old and up.
