About this event
African Americans in STEM Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon is a joint project between the nonprofit BlackComputeHER.org and the National Museum of African American History and Culture. BlackComputeHER.org is dedicated to supporting computer and tech education along with workforce development for African American girls and women. The National Museum of African American History and Culture recognizes that African Americans have contributed to the United States’ Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) enterprise since the nation’s beginning, yet their names and contributions have been routinely overlooked.
Over the course of two weeks, the African Americans Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon will be used to highlight African Americans STEM professionals, specifically, engineers, computer scientists and women in STEM throughout history. We look forward to creating and building information resources for all people interested in African American history and STEM.
Organized by: NMAAHC, blackcomputeHER, and Wikimedia DC
