Black Scientists and Engineers

The Science & Engineering Library is celebrating Black History Month with a display based on the AAAS website, Spotlight On African American Scientists. Featured scientists include acoustician James E. West, industrial engineering doctoral candidate April Savoy, and eleven other practicing scientists/engineers. As the website notes, “…African Americans have made great strides as scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and inventors.. .. However, there’s still much room for progress, because even today blacks are sorely underrepresented as science students, teachers, and professionals.” Stop by the S&E Library during the month of February to spend a few minutes learning about these impressive researchers and their accomplishments.
