Carolina Women in STEM Fall Colloquium Series – Screening & Discussion: “Hidden Figures”

September 13, 2019 @ 3:00 pm

The Carolina Women in STEM Fall Colloquium Series will present the film Hidden Figures. The film tells the incredible untold story of Katherine Jonson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae) – brilliant African-American women working at NASA who served as the brains behind the launch into orbit of astronaut John Glenn, a stunning achievement that turned around the Space Race. The visionary trio crossed all gender and racial line and inspired generations.

A discussion about resiliency and growth mindset will follow the screening.

Snacks will be provided.
