High school students learn about research, innovation and African American inventors

Twenty-one high school students are at the Fort IRC today for the DORED Black History Month event, The Colors of Innovation.  The students are touring labs and learning about research, innovation and African American inventors.  This afternoon, they’ll hear from the first African American woman to receive a Ph.D. in electrical engineering, Dr. Sandra Johnson of IBM (IEEE Fellow, ACM Distinguished Engineer and member of the IBM Academy of Technology, an honor given to the top 1% of IBM’s technical staff).  The event was organized by a group led by Cathy Jones of the Office of Sponsored Programs and Louis Judge, director of outreach and tech transfer.
