Full House for Hidden Figures

Not everyone has an opportunity to be exposed to heroes in STEM - those who define our dreams and our careers. STEM for Her seeks to expose all girls in the DC metro area to women to look up to, in order to inspire and further cement their interest in STEM fields. With the release of Hidden Figures, a film about three female African American mathematicians and engineers working for NASA in the 1950s, we are able to see the tenacity, strength and genius these three women embodied and the path they forged for girls everywhere.  

Recently, STEM for Her provided a grant to Deborah Bey, Rising Tides, which enabled a screening of Hidden Figures for less fortunate girls in the DC-metro area to not only see the movie but also participate in a panel to further discuss opportunities in STEM.
 
Over 450 women and girls participated in this event because of donations like yours!  We hope you will continue to support our efforts to educate, inspire and mentor girls in the STEM fields.

"Thank you for allowing my class attend the screening. It was an incredible experience…I think we may have some aspiring future engineers…”
