March is Women’s History Month, and the Adler Planetarium and the DuSable Museum of African American History are teaming up to present programming around Hidden Figures, a best-sellling book and Oscar-nominated film about the true story of a team of black women mathematicians who served a vital role in NASA during the early years of the American space program.
Chicago students and education providers are invited to join the Adler for special screenings of Hidden Figures accompanied by conversations with Chicago women working in STEM fields today, moderated by teens from the Adler’s Youth Leadership Council.
Screenings and panels will take place at the Adler (1300 S Lake Shore Drive) on Saturday, March 25, at 10am and 1:30pm.
Free registration is open to youth ages 11-19 and one guest. School and organization groups interested in coming should contact youthprograms.
