Learning About Black History STEM Pioneers

At Early Child Development Center the kindergarten students were excited to learn all about Katherine Johnson. She was a mathematician at NASA who used her math skills to help with the Apollo project (that put people on the Moon) in the 1960s. She was one of the first black people, and one of the first women, to have such a position as NASA. The kiddos loved learning about black Americans just like Katherine Johnson who have worked in STEM fields and made their own rockets out of craft supplies in honor of Katherine Johnson. The kiddos also played with a space-themed sensory bin!

Rockets and sensory bins

Everyone loved playing with the space-themed sensory bin when they weren't working on making their rockets. Thanks to Katherine Johnson for all her work to put people on the moon and for inspiring fun space activities!
