Movie Night: Top Secret Rosies

Top Secret Rosies: The Female Computers of WWII, shares the little-known story of a group of female mathematicians who did secret research for the US Army during WWII, a handful of whom went on to serve as the programmers of ENIAC, the first electronic computer. Join MoMath for a special screening of this movie, followed by a conversation with Producer/Director LeAnn Erickson. Due to the mature subject matter of the film, this program is not recommended for children below the age of 13. For further information and to register, visit rosies.momath.org.
