Happy Valentine’s Day! February is the month of love and history – And there is nothing we love more than Mathematics, our MATHgicians, and Black History! This month we fan-girl swoon over our featured mathematician who not only works to collect and present data during these historical times but she also works to preserve the history and legacy of current trailblazers in Mathematics. Here’s what inside your “STEM + HERStory” box:
- Meet Dr. Shelby Wilson: Check out our exclusive interview with Dr. Shelby Wilson, Data Scientist at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, Professor of Mathematics at Morehouse College, and Co-Creator of Mathematically Gifted & Black!
