Hidden No More

Amplifying voices and shedding light on science stories in the shadows

There are so many exciting stories to tell about science and history – and more importantly – about the people who contribute to our world! That’s why Morehead continues to find creative ways of sharing these stories with you including through our award-winning planetarium shows, exhibits, programs and much more.

In 2018, we launched the Hidden No More: STEM Women of Color Tour that traveled across North Carolina to share the stories of Black women working in STEM, including our Director of Programs & Strategic Initiatives, Crystal Harden.

Although the tour is over, there are so many more stories to shed light on. In 2019, we were awarded a five-year grant award from the National Science Foundation for our Hidden No More: Shedding Light on Science Stories in the Shadows project. The project is still in development and will become a part of our new exhibit space in the near future.
