Hidden Figures 2018

Mikayla Sharrieff, Bria Snell, and India Skinner, 3 young African American scientists from the Washington D.C. area entered in a science competition with NASA to #bethespark. 

According to NASA:

Students will investigate NASA technology and Spinoff technology. To display their research and ideas, students will use a combination of text, images and videos to create a Glogster Multimedia Poster.

Voting was open to the public so that in the case of a tie, the voting would be the tie breaker. Last week, the voting was shared on various social media networks. Many votes came in for Mikayla, Bria, and India. So much so that these young ladies were in the lead at least 50% ahead of their closest competitors!

However, as is expected, our beautiful young ladies have been blocked from achieving their goals. It has been alleged that 4chan hacked the NASA website and skewed the votes. NASA has since suspended voting and will "only be using the rubrics" to make a final decision. 

The ladies of Black Women Who Plan and Create (BWWPC) requested to put together a GoFundMe to present these three young ladies the opportunity to reach and achieve their destinies. Join us as we help these three young girls plan and execute the skills and support they need to reach for the stars and TRULY #bethespark.
