Big Dream SaturdayGALVESTON, Texas (February 6, 2018) – Learn about engineering marvels big and small, and the inspiring human stories behind them, in Dream Big 3D: Engineering Our World and then construct your own masterpieces on Dream Big Saturday, February 24 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. in the Moody Gardens Visitor Center Lobby.  

Bricks for Kidz will be on site with a hands-on display of LEGO bricks that children can build with as part of creative play. Guests will also get to experiment with the LEGO Spin Art Machine and create unique spin art they can take home with them.  

Representatives from Clear Creek High School will be available as they display their solar car. The solar vehicle, built entirely by CCHS students, is covered in solar panels and runs entirely on electrical energy. Students participated in the 2017 Solar Car Challenge at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, where the car reached a top speed of 35 miles per hour while on the track.  

Also presenting is the Robotics Club from Ball High School with different demonstrations and displays. Students from the club competed on the team that won the 2016 VEX Robotics Competition High School World Championship.  

“Engineering is an integral part of our lives, from the roads and bridges we drive on to exploring the deepest depths of the ocean,” said John Zendt, president and CEO of Moody Gardens. “We are excited to not only be able to offer this inspirational movie, but show children and adults the meaningful ways engineers have an impact on the world around us through hands-on activities and demonstrations on Dream Big Saturday.”
