The IEEE Houston Section in collaboration with the NSBE Process Improvement Special Interest Group, is having a series of webinars during Black History Month 2021. Each webinar during this series will take a deep dive into the historical understanding on African-American and other ethnic STEM innovators. During each webinar, we will discuss some key innovators’ contributions to STEM, and their challenges to bring their work to life. Elementary students through professionals are encouraged and welcomed to attend these sessions. Professional Development Hours (PDH) certificates will be given to those who attend any webinar of this series for at least 45 minutes. Registration for each webinar will close 48 hours before the webinar date. 

Participants of this series will be able to: 
  • Gain insight into African-Americans and others who have made contributions to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
  • Learn about innovators who shaped history with their contributions and the time period in which they lived
  • Understand the impact of their contributions to STEM
  • Build nonfiction literacy skills as they read additional article resources
  • Apply critical thinking skills to answer questions regarding STEM Innovators contributions

Why Wednesdays?

Wednesday is Wodens-day, the Anglo-Saxon equivalent of the Norse Odin or the Roman Mercury, a sky god and the god of wisdom, poetry, commerce, travel, thievery, eloquence and science. He is also the messenger of the other gods. Woden represents Mercury, meaning that Wednesday is Mercury day.
