Reach for the Moon (Morgantown)

Join us in Meeting Room A at the Morgantown Public Library to learn about Katherine Johnson, the African American mathematician from West Virginia who helped put some of the the first humans into space and whose story is featured in the movie Hidden Figures.

We will read Katherine Johnson’s biography, hear a story written about her by Miss Elkins Outstanding Teen, create space-themed origami, and build moon phase calendars for 2023. This will be a great way to take young learners ages 7-12 on an inspirational journey.

This event is a partnership with the Lila Bear Explor(her) Club & Miss Elkins Outstanding Teen.
