Hidden Figures: Young Readers’ Edition

By Margot Lee Shetterly

Before John Glenn orbited the earth, or Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, a group of dedicated female mathematicians known as ‘human computers’ used pencils, slide rules, and adding machines to calculate the numbers that would launch rockets, and astronauts, into space. It is the powerful story of four African-American female mathematicians at NASA who helped achieve some of the greatest moments in our space program.
