Fundraising Opportunity for Dream Big Educational Toolkits


Update: Dream Big Enters 2018 Bigger Than Ever (article)


With over one million viewers, ASCE has a goal to put Dream Big into every U.S. school in 2018.  The educational toolkit will include a DVD of the film, a teacher's guide, and accompanying educational videos.  Thanks to a grant, high schools across the nation will be receiving a copy of the Dream Big educational toolkit.


Our Section Board would like to raise funds to purchase an educational toolkit of Dream Big to each elementary and middle schools within our Section.  Our goal will be to raise funds to provide one copy of the Dream Big educational materials to approximately 500 elementary and middle schools within our Section and to help young minds get excited about engineering.  Please contact one of our Section Board Members for additional details


if you would like to make a personal donation and share the joy and satisfaction of engineering to a new generation of youth, see the instructions online at
