Special Tech Tales: Storytime for Young Explorers
Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly
Kids out of school on Friday for the long weekend? Come join us at the Computer Museum of America in Roswell, during Roswell Roots and Black History Month, as we celebrate the contributions of four extraordinary African American women. “Hidden Figures” tells the story of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Christine Darden and how they persevered and overcame obstacles as women and as women of color who helped send man to the moon in 1969. There will be an activity ideal for children aged 5 to 10 following the reading and before and/or afterward, families are invited to explore the museum and its Apollo 11 exhibit featuring memorabilia and an almost lifesize lunar lander replica.
Free with museum admission.
