Join us on Friday 17 February as Hidden Figures is released at ODEON Printworks.
The 2oth Century Fox film is the incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.
To celebrate the release of the film and raise awareness of women’s role in science Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre will be onsite at ODEON Printworks on Friday 17 February with some interactive science activities and the Tim Peak’s space suit replica!!
Come and join us for free on your way to the film to learn more about science and space, the incredible work done by the nearly all-female team of astrophysicists at Jodrell Bank and see if this is a potential career option for your young scientists!
