Former NASA Engineer Speaking at Fundraiser



Former NASA “Hidden Figure” Speaks at November 17, 2017 Fundraiser “Hidden Figure” Christine Darden Will Be Keynote Speaker at November 17, 2017 Fundraiser for STEM Students Organized by 100 Houses of Faith For Immediate Release Press Contact: Dr. Charlene Crawley: (VCU Chemistry Department) RICHMOND, VIRGINIA (NOVEMBER 10, 2017)—Registration is now open for the Faith & Science Walking Hand in Hand fundraiser, and the organizers are pleased to announce the keynote speaker at this event in Support of STEM Students. Dr. Christine Darden, an aeronautical engineer and one of the NASA “colored” human computers portrayed in the movie Hidden Figures (Margot Shetterly) will headline the program in Richmond on Friday, November 17, 2017. Darden’s topic will be “The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race” This event will be held at the Fifth Baptist Church (1415 West Cary Street, Richmond, VA 23220). Mentoring Program: In one area of science, volunteers from the Virginia Section of the American Chemical Society mentor chemistry undergraduate students. The goal is to (1) increase participation in the chemistry community, (2) increase awareness of the types of jobs available in the chemistry workforce and (3) help students realize their potential. The college experience is a pivotal time in the life of a young scientist. Through the American Chemical Society’s mentoring program opportunities are provided to meet and learn from chemists working professionally. This relationship also enables networking beyond academia and builds an informed vision of a post-college career. Fundraiser: This event will raise funds to encourage low-income and minority students to pursue degrees and careers in STEM. Volunteers are recruited to mentor the underrepresented students who desire to enter careers in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Funding sponsors are heartily sought to reinforce the viability of the students’ success. 100 Houses of Faith have already joined in supporting the endeavor. Dr. Charlene Crawley, Assistant Professor at VCU’s Chemistry Department says statistics show that “there is significant room for improvement. The success as a nation does rely on technology and using the US workforce and developing young people for STEM.” Seating is limited, so advance registration is required.
