Movies @ NCL: Dream Big & Spare Parts

March 23, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Location: Lamb Room

Join us for a second screening of the inspiring documentary, Dream Big, followed by the feature film, Spare Parts!


Narrated by Academy Award winner Jeff Bridges, Dream Big examines man-made marvels that will forever transform the way you think about engineering. From the Great Wall of China and the world’s tallest buildings to underwater robots, solar cars, and smart, sustainable cities, Dream Big celebrates the human ingenuity behind engineering, and shows how engineers push the limits of innovation in unexpected and amazing ways.

See the movie inspired by the bestselling book, Spare Parts! With the help of their high school’s newest teacher (George Lopez), four Hispanic students form a robotics club. Although they have no experience, the youths set their sights on a national robotics contest. With less than $100 and scavenged parts, they build a robot and compete against reigning champion MIT. Along the way, the students learn not only how to build a robot but something far more important: how to forge bonds that will last a lifetime. Starring George Lopez, Jamie Lee Curtis, Marisa Tomei, Carlos PenVega, Jose Julian, David Del Rio, Esai Morales, Oscar Guittierez, Alex PenVega, Alessandro Rosaldo, and Aubrey K. Miller.
