    Elementary school teachers can use these activities to enrich the study of many different science topics in the elementary curriculum. Topics are aligned with curriculum for physical science, earth and space science, and some life science.

    The activities focus on the process of doing science, including the importance of establishing an experimental control; changing and controlling variables; observing, measuring, and recording data; and drawing reasonable conclusions. Whenever possible, mathematics is incorporated into activities so that math and science skills are developed together.

    The Dream Big Educator Guide is a companion resource to the film. It includes multidisciplinary activities for students in grades K–12 and has been written to meet Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), as well as common state science objectives. Each lesson presents students with an engineering challenge inspired by the work of real engineers and can be used to help introduce the engineering mindset to the classroom or your home.
