PROGRESS IS A DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD

 

If Hidden Figures was been released about a decade ago, we would probably label it as a “nice movie” and we would all move on.

We live in the time where we’re forced to recognize the necessity of STEM in our society especially amongst women, it would be a shame to turn a blind eye on the potential impact this movie can have on our mission to make STEM fun, relatable and attainable.

The P-STEM Foundation in conjunction with Masala Films hosted the pre-screening of this movie on the 22nd of February at the Rosebank Cinema in Johannesburg. The film then made it’s debut to the South African audience 2 days days later. Those fortunate enough to attend the pre-screening had nothing but praises to sing regarding the movie. 

Our list of attendees ranges from University students who have either completed or working towards a qualification in STEM ( Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics), educators, STEM enthusiasts/influencers, SANSA (South African National Space Agency) representitives and so many more. Watch the video below to see what some of the attendees had to say: 

Thank you to everybody who made this day possible. Make sure you watchthis movie, if you haven’t already!
