Virginia Tech's Division of Information Technology presents Hidden Figures: Stability Wind Tunnel Tour as part of their celebration of Women's Month on Monday, March 19, 2018 at Randolph Hall on the campus of Virginia Tech with tours available at 5:45 pm and 6:45 pm

The Stability Wind Tunnel is operated by the Aerospace and Ocean Engineering Department. It was originally built at the NACA Langley Aeronautical Laboratory in 1940 and was the prototype of the tunnel seen in Hidden Figures!

The wind tunnel was erected in 1959. With a 1.83m-by-1.83m test-section, it is one of the largest university operated wind tunnels in the United States with maximum speeds of 80 m/s (178 mph).

Admission is free.

The capacity is limited to 10-12 people per tour (total of 20-24 people) and registration is required.

Each tour will take approximately 45 minutes and attendees are to meet in front of Randolph Hall.

The series of events "Hidden Figures: Into the Future" will include a free showing of the award-winning movie, with a keynote speaker and Q&A session, followed by a variety of tours of Virginia Tech science and technology facilities. We will also be sharing information related to college access and majors in the STEM and data science fields.
