Join us as we celebrate Women’s History Month with a new program series that honors the contributions of black women in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math. Katherine Johnson was a trailblazing mathematician whose work at NASA proved critical in helping move space exploration forward. Be inspired by her work as you try your hand, and mind, at solving some “moon math” like Johnson herself.

This program was created in combination with Ellice Patterson, Biologist, and Executive Director of Abilities Dance Boston, and a Discovery Museum Science & Engineering Communication Fellow.
