Saturday, January 14th, spend a day of free fun at the Hampton History Museum exploring the fascinating world of human computers. Learn about the brilliant female NASA mathematicians whose use of math helped get us into space. If you’re brave, challenge your mind with creative math problems related to navigation, astronomy, and rocketry. Dive into the history of navigation and try your hand at using compasses and learn about celestial navigation.
There will be fun activities with math and robotics courtesy of the Virginia Air & Space Center. You will also be able to discover more about human computers with a special ‘Hidden Figures’ project thanks to their partners at NASA Langley Research Center!
Family activities are free of charge and take place in the museum’s Great Hall and courtyard from 11am-2pm. Admission to the museum galleries is a special $3 per person reduced rate on second Saturdays.
