Hidden Figures is about black female mathematicians who worked at NASA during the Space Race. As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the unbelievably true life stories of three of these women, known as “human computers”, we follow these women as they quickly rose the ranks of NASA alongside many of history’s greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Gobels Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.

The Mentorship Program is growing and we want you to be a part of it! If you’re interested in being a mentee or a mentor fill out the questionnaire by January 24th to be considered for an open spot in the program.

The Mentorship Program aims to foster the growth of incoming CS students and to continue our mission of making the department at Portland State a safe, inclusive space to learn. Out mottoe “we belong” motivates us to encourage new and returning students to be a part of our movement by growing our community and inspiring others to do the same.
