Katharine Johnson was one of the women who inspired the movie Hidden Figures.
Now she is one of 32 women of science who are the subjects of inspiring posters by New York artist Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya.
Her project – called “Beyond Curie” – is described as “a celebration of badass women in STEM”…including 16 Nobel Prize winners.
So far, Phingbodhipakkiya has provided a sneak peek at nearly half of her amazing montages. In addition to Johnson, they honor such notables as computer scientist Grace Hopper, astronaut Mae Jemison, nuclear scientists Lise Neitner and Chien-Shiung Wu, AIDS researcher Françoise Barré-Sinoussi....and (above) 19th century mathematician Ada Lovelace, often called the world first computer programmer.
The artist would love to see the posters in schools across America. You can also download them for your own family. She is licensing them under a Creative Commons license that only requires you never to sell them and always give her credit. Details at https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/
