13 Feb STEM Continues to Inspire
Have you seen Hidden Figures yet? The movie, still showing in theaters, is a biographic film depicting a team of African-American women mathematicians who worked on NASA’s Project Mercury, the program that made history by sending the first American astronauts into space. Along with their work on the groundbreaking program, the three main characters also made history as some of the first women of color to hold high-ranking positions in NASA.
Changing the world isn’t all about “giant leaps” and single moments of innovation. Our successes are built through the actions of hardworking everyday people, and they are achieved one step at a time. That’s the lesson of the movie.
In line with that lesson, Techbridge Girls! were treated to a special screening in celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. day. You can read more about that event here.
Techbridge Girls, launched in 2000, is a program that expands the academic and career options for girls in science, technology, and engineering. Through hands-on learning, we empower the next generation of innovators and leaders.
data2insight is a proud to continue to encourage young girls in STEM to inspire them to take their first step.
