The Franklin Institute joins the initiative to engage girls in all aspects of manufacturing and design and inspire them to consider careers in engineering with a day full of hands-on activities exploring the various branches—including mechanical, electrical, chemical, and more. 

Join us in the IMAX Dome Theater at 11:15 am, 1:15 pm, or 3:15 pm to see how engineers Dream Big!  Tickets are available for purchase at the box office.

The IMAX movie Dream Big: Engineering our World will transform how young minds think about engineering!  Featuring a diverse group of engineers from around the world, this film will inspire audiences to think about their own future in engineering to solve problems that are close to their own worlds.

Visitors on this day will also have the opportunity to meet local female engineers and understand the significant role they have in shaping our future. 

The event is in recognition of National Engineers Week (February 17-23), dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers.

Included with General Museum Admission, IMAX additional fee
