After a four-hour event that featured a special presentation of "Hidden Figures," followed by speeches from successful women in science-based fields, 180 female students ranging from fifth to 12th grade walked out of a theater in Seattle excited to pursue future careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

The event was sponsored by Techbridge, an organization that aims to inspire the next generation of innovators and leaders in fields of technology, science, and engineering. The organization has worked with pre-teen and teenage girls that attend low-income schools in the Seattle area for more than two years, KOMO News reports.

"They are learning women can do anything and we already have," said Callista Chen, executive director of greater Seattle Techbridge.

Hidden Figures is the story of three African American women who despite racial and gender confinements successfully led the first NASA space mission in the 1960s.
