Engineering Week is here!
Engineering Week (February 19-25) is happening this week. You may have been too busy to participate. Hey, things come up and have to be dealt with – that is what it means to be an engineer! The need will still exist for more students to pursue STEM in post-secondary studies which is vital to our state’s economic and social health. MHTA invites you to consider other opportunities available to serve students.
Hidden Figures & STEM Role Models
By now, most people know about Hidden Figures, the movie about the untold story of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson, who served as the computational power behind the early days of NASA and the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit. These women crossed gender and color boundaries to help propel the United States to the front of the space race.
