Virginia Tech's Division of Information Technology presents Hidden Figures: Tour of the Visionarium + Assistive Technologies Lab as part of their celebration of Women's Month on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 which will depart the Haymarket Theater inside the Squires Students Center on the campus of Virginia Tech at 7:15 pm.

The Visionarium and the Assistive Technologies Lab in Torgersen Hall are both part of the Division of Information Technology, dedicated to serving the technology needs of students, faculty, and staff. The Visionarium (Advanced Research Computing) focuses on boosting access to cutting-edge visual analysis tools that integrate with research, including 3-D simulations of data in a virtual environment.

The Assistive Technologies lab creates and improves assistive technologies for people with disabilities, allowing them to increase, enhance, or maintain their functional and occupational capabilities.

Space is limited to two groups of 10 people and registration required: https://virginiatech.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_b9DLy3EngYSerhH.

The Virginia Tech facilities tours available after the free Hidden Figures movie screening include:
• Visionarium + Assistive Technologies Lab (Torgersen Hall)
• Goodwin Hall + the Terrestrial Robotics Lab
• Ware Lab + Hybrid Electric Vehicle Lab

All tours will depart Haymarket Theatre at 7:15 pm and required advance registration due to limited space.

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.
