Event description

Description

Join us for a tribute to the acclaimed NASA engineer Dr. Christine Mann Darden-- and an engaging conversation about science, Black history and how the power of innovation and determination can change the world.

Dr. Darden began her career with NASA in 1967 alongside other pioneering black women, as portrayed in the book, Hidden Figures, which inspired the block-buster movie. She would go on to serve NASA for 40 years as a mathematician, data analyst, aeronautical engineer and one of the world’s leading experts in sonic boom prediction, sonic boom minimization and supersonic wing design.

** Limited seating, available on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations required.
