About this Event

Come join Black Women in STEM 2.0 and iUrban Teen as we celebrate Dr. Christine Darden and her long standing career in STEM. Dr. Darden was one of the Hidden Figure engineers for NASA and mentored by Katherine Johnson.

In 1967, Christine Darden was added to the pool of 'human computers' who wrote complex programs and tediously crunched numbers for engineers at NASA's Langley Research Center. But Darden wanted to do more than process the data — she wanted to create it. Her first assignment was to write a computer program for sonic boom. That program launched a 25-year career of working sonic boom minimization. Darden continued her education at George Washington University, and in 1983, she earned a doctorate degree in mechanical engineering.
