Holocaust Museum Houston will present a screening of the film Zero Gravity, followed by a special presentation from the University of Houston’s SACNAS Chapter.

Zero Gravity follows a diverse group of middle-school students from San Jose, California, who compete in a nationwide tournament to code satellites aboard the International Space Station. Seen through the wondrous eyes of three young students and their first-time coach, they each take an intimate and personal journey to space as their team grows from amateur coders to representing California in the ISS Finals Tournament – the culmination of a summer-long adventure that sees their incredible accomplishment performed by astronauts in orbit.

This event will feature a special presentation by the University of Houston’s SACNAS Chapter. SACNAS, or the Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science, is an inclusive national organization dedicated to fostering the success of diverse scientists, from college students to professionals, in attaining research opportunities, advanced degrees, careers, and positions of leadership in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). SACNAS works to support the most underrepresented in STEM.
