Hidden Figures is the powerful story of four African-American female mathematicians at NASA who helped achieve some of the greatest moments in our space program; however, until now, did not receive the credit they deserved. 

Before John Glenn orbited the earth, or Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of dedicated female mathematicians known as “human computers” used pencils, slide rulers, and adding machines to calculate the numbers that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space.

This book brings to life the stories of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden, who lived through the Civil Rights era, the Space Race, the Cold War, and the movement for gender equality, and whose work forever changed the face of NASA and the country.

In this multi-disciplinary class, students will analyze and discuss the novel while incorporating historical events and learning about the science and math the female NASA heroines used!  At home, students will keep an interactive notebook where they will record their thoughts and non-fiction information about this amazing time period in history.

NOTE:

Registration deadline is March 15, 2021.

There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
