“MAKERS: Women in Space” traces the history of women pioneers in the U.S. space program, and features the next generation of women engineers, mathematicians and astronauts — the new group of pioneers who continue to make small but significant steps forward.

Following the 60 minute screening, there will be a panel discussion led by Sarah Prosory, Mesa THINKspot Coordinator; Kathy Collins, Boeing Attack Helicopter Engineering Integration Leader and Brittney Cunningham, Girls in Tech Phoenix Managing Director.  Mesa THINKspot will be conducting a 3-D printing demonstration, and showing samples of 3-D printed jewelry.

The next film on Thursday, Nov. 6 is “Evolution of a Criminal.”  In this gripping blend of documentary, true crime and personal essay, a filmmaker confronts his past, dissecting the circumstances that led him to commit a bank robbery as a young man, and his journey of reflection and forgiveness.
