'Hidden Figures' discussion group

GlaxoSmithKline Carbon Neutral Laboratory for Sustainable Chemistry, Jubilee Campus, University of Nottingham, Winter Gardens
Wednesday 25th October 2017 (12:00-14:00)


An event hosted by the School of Chemistry, as part of Black History Month 2017.

This school event will be a departure from the usual seminar series to celebrate Black History Month.

The session will take a look at the themes explored in the novel Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly.

Hidden Figures follows the story of three mathematicians who overcame discrimination, as women and as African Americans, while working at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) during the Space Race.

This event will include coffee, cake and a short talk.

It will be held on Wednesday 25 October, 12:00pm-2:00pm at the Winter Gardens, GlaxoSmithKline Carbon Neutral Laboratory for Sustainable Chemistry.
