IMAX film on how engineers build the world.
22 January 2019 | by TxMikeSee all my reviews

I found this on DVD from my local library. It was made as an IMAX film so the sound and video are first rate.

Jeff Bridges narrates. It features a few engineers, and a team of high school students, using engineering principles to solve big problems. Like buildings that won't crumble in an earthquake, tall buildings that withstand typhoon winds, a bridge over a dangerous remote river so students can get to school, a canal system in Scotland, an underwater robot competition. It also has a good focus on opportunities for girls and ladies to get into engineering.

Overall a very satisfying and informative presentation. I don't get why there are a few very negative reviews here.
