    March 25, 2018, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ Sandy Bottom Nature Park

    Join us for a special Sunday Cruise that includes a picnic. This month we will begin at Sandy Bottom Nature Park and ride through the Northampton area. (We will not be riding on the park trails.) The riding route does require crossing a pedestrian overpass bridge, and dependent upon group size, we may dismount from our bicycles. For any runners and walkers looking to join in the fun, we also have someone leading a 2-mile jog/run. As with the bike cruise, this will be friendly to beginners. (This jog/run will be through the park trails.) When we return, join us for a (bring your own) picnic at the Lakeside Shelter. If you have other friends or family that want to join for just the picnic, they are welcome. The more, the merrier!

Hampton History Museum

  1. When the Computer Wore a Skirt: NASA's Human Computers

    January 21, 2017, 10:00 AM - June 1, 2018, 5:00 PM @ Hampton History Museum

    In 1935 a group of five women came to Langley to form a computer pool to process all the data coming in from wind tunnel and flight tests. It began as an experiment, but became something much bigger. By 1942, the human computers had become essential to operations. A memo that April stated: "The engineers admit themselves that the girl computers do the work more rapidly and accurately than they could." In the 1940’s Langley also began recruiting African-American women as human computers, but due to segregation laws these "West Area Computers" were kept separate from their white counterparts. This changed in the 1950s as NACA (later NASA) integrated and the “human computers” extended into the broader scientific community at NASA. By the 1960s they numbered in the hundreds. This exhibit features three of these pioneers: Dorothy Vaughan, Katherine Johnson, and Hampton native-Mary Jackson.
