The Oscar-nominated movie Hidden Figures highlighted previously unknown contributions of African-American women to America’s space program and spurred discussion of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) careers for women today. SciFi4Chicks digs into both on our March podcast.

The women of the West Computing Wing – human “computers” of NASA’s early days.

Our discussion ranges from the  multiple challenges faced and overcome by the pioneering African-American women of NASA to the work done today to inspire young women to pursue STEM careers. Mindy and Ann also reflect on their own histories with STEM subjects.

Listen in and tell us your stories and experiences in the worlds of STEM!

AND check out Teresa Wickersham’s SciFi4Me review of Hidden Figures.

The panel: Ann Laabs, Mindy Inlow
