Hidden Figures Film Showing


Around 100 students from public and charter bilingual schools attended yesterday a film showing of “Hidden Figures” at the International Institute’s auditorium, home of the American Space Madrid.  The film was introduced by ACAO Ryan Matheny Garrido who welcomed the audience and underscored that it is a story about how people—in this case women and African Americans—overcome obstacles to succeed in any profession, the importance women’s being involved in math and science careers, and how only working together and harnessing everyone’s talents can a society reach its full potential.
