TEDxFSCJ Salon: Rediscovering Space
On April 22, 2017, a young woman from Jacksonville, Florida spoke in Washington, DC, telling the people gathered at the historic March for Science rally that, “I’m marching because I want all girls, especially girls of color, to know that they can be a part of science, and even leaders in science.” Hear that woman, Taylor Richardson, share more of her story at TEDxFSCJ Salon: Rediscovering Space. Free seats are still available! Taylor is a 14-year-old student at The Bolles School in Jacksonville and an accomplished science advocate. #Astronaut StarBright The salon will be held Thursday, December 7, at the Museum of Science & History, Jacksonville, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. @astrostarbright
Space exploration and the science behind it are evolving so quickly that we constantly hear putting humans on Mars is finally within our reach! TEDxFSCJ partnered with MOSH to talk about how Florida and the First Coast play a part in space exploration. The impressive speaker lineup includes a NASA engineer but I'm mostly excited about Taylor Richardson. This 14-year-old Bolles student is bound to end up in a flight suit somewhere in space. She's not just clearing the path of diversity for herself, Taylor is an advocate for more girls in STEM. After meeting Michelle Obama (OMG) at a private screening of Hidden Figures, Taylor raised thousands of dollars so she could take as many girls as possible to see the movie, too.
Don't miss out on Taylor's talk and a special telescope pop-up on the MOSH rooftop! The Rediscovering Space salon is at 6:30 p.m. Click here for ticket info.
