Movie review: We loved it! Engineering Our World was uplifting, inspiring and showed that with determination, everyone can dream big! The films at the California Science Center never fail to amaze and inspire us while my daughter always comes away asking so many questions. The film's focus and message is on inspiring women and minorities to become engineers.
Featuring projects both big and small, they all made a major impact within their part of the world. We watched the trailer so we had an idea as to what would be covered, my daughter is fascinated with China so with the Great Wall being one of the featured engineering feats she was beyond excited to learn more. One thing we did learn was that during in the building of the Great Wall it was later discovered if sticky rice was used it made the joints more flexible, stronger and those areas have held up amazingly well over the years. We also learned about the trials of a small and remote village that wouldn't let anything (not even mother nature) stand in their way to furthering their education and what one woman did to help a community help themselves conquer that obstacle. I would recommend all families see this 40 minute film to get their child's young budding minds thinking and wanting to learn more. Recommended for children grades 4 and up.
