Dream Big: Engineering our World – A 3D IMAX Movie about Engineering, Inventions and Design!

Coming to IMAX screens this week (Feb 18th) Dream Big: Engineering our World is a movie I’ve only recently learned about but I was instantly all in. From their website: Narrated by Academy Award® winner Jeff Bridges, Dream Big: Engineering Our World is a first film of its kind for IMAX® and giant screen theatres that will transform how we think about engineering. From the world’s tallest buildings and underwater robots to a solar car race and smart, sustainable cities, Dream Big celebrates the human ingenuity behind engineering marvels big and small, and shows how engineers push the limits of innovation in unexpected and amazing ways. With its inspiring human stories and powerful giant-screen visuals, Dream Big also reveals the heart that drives engineers to create better lives for people and a more sustainable future for us all. Dream big was produced in partnership with the American Society of Civil Engineers in hopes of inspiring Kid and adults alike to the challenges, compassion and innovations from people of all walks of life who have worked to innovate, create and engineer our world around us.

4 Tips to Staying Active with a CAD Desk Job

Hey everybody, hope you’re all doing well and off to a great start to the school year if you are in school or enjoying the start of football season like me (I spent Sunday watching the Seahawks and building a stroller in prep for our first baby:)!) Both of those actually lead in to today’s post which is about making an extra effort to stay active and healthy while working at a desk job or sitting in classes like most of us do. As a designer, engineer or drafter most of our day is spent either sitting at a desk or possibly standing around the office or on site, we have very little activity and movement built in to our jobs. Add on to our sedentary jobs the fact that like me, most of us are interested in gaming, watching movies or just computers and tech in general and it makes it even more difficult to stay active as a designer/CAD user.   Not only can being sedentary cause health issues and lead to more sick days but it can leave us feeling unmotivated, having poor posture and feeling tired earlier in the day. So, in order to help step up our activity level and to feel better in general I have 4 tips that I’ve found help keep me active while not taking too much time out of my daily productivity. Take a look at the points below and leave a comment below telling me what your favorite way to stay active is?
