Yavapai County Free Library District: STEM – Mathematics and the Movie “Hidden Figures”

Mathematics covers a wide range of fields, all interesting, some more lucrative than others. 

We’ll discuss a variety of resources at the Fab Lab at Mayer Public Library and beyond that will shape our future in powerful ways.

We’ll also watch the movie, Hidden Figures.

As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in US history. Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.

Refreshments will be provided thanks to The Friends of the Library!  Questions?  Call 928-717-8118.
