Christine Darden was recently included in the book, Hidden Figures, by author Margot Shetterly as one who stood on the shoulders of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughn, and Mary Jackson as they contributed to the NASA Space Program as part of the segregated West Computers in the early 1960s. Darden will tell the story of how, even though geometry class was her highest level of high school mathematics, she was able to graduate college with a degree in mathematics education, which ultimately led her to positions as a “human computer” and an aerospace engineer at NASA and as a researcher in sonic boom minimization, eventually rising to senior leadership.

Early bird registration pricing ends Oct. 17.
