This week’s #WomenInSTEM is an all-around boss! Dr. Evelyn Boyd Granville was the second African-American woman to earn a Ph.D. in mathematics in America.
She worked for the National Bureau of Standards developing missile fuses before going to work for IBM. While at IBM, Granville designed some computer software that analyzed the satellite orbits for Project Mercury.
After working with IBM and the space program, she wanted to continue her career in mathematics and share all the knowledge she had gained with the next generation teaching college and school-age students.
Even after her retirement, Granville has continued to be a HUGE advocate for STEM education. #WomenInSTEMWednesday
