Movies @ NCL: Dream Big & The Search for Life

March 7, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Location: Lamb Room

Learn how engineering and astrobiology are exciting, innovative fields that are constantly changing and expanding as we obtain new knowledge and technology. Join us for a double feature of two inspiring documentaries:  Dream Big: Engineering Our World  followed by The Search for Life in Space.


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.

So many wonder, is there life ‘out there’? Are we alone in the universe? The Search for Life, a  short documentary, targets these questions as it reviews current knowledge and ideas about astrobiology – the scientific study of life elsewhere. In the film, astrobiologists travel the globe searching out extreme climates and determining how life forms adapt to even the harshest of conditions.
