“I am so proud of American women for what they did! This is going to be fantastic”, so excited and passionate is Mary Frances Alexander, assistant at the Center for Civil Leadership and Responsibility, when talking about the “Top Secret Rosies of World War II” lecture.

For most students math is just a combination of figures and operations with them. Hardly anyone can imagine that mathematical skills were used as a secret weapon during World War II.

LeAnn Erickson, documentary filmmaker, will present a lecture at Camden County College about a group of women, who put together their mathematical minds and helped win the war. The event will be held on Thursday, March 11, 2010 at 7 p.m. at the Civic Hall of the Connector building on Blackwood campus. The lecture will include parts of a documentary film, which is currently in post-production, with an answer-question session and a discussion to follow. Barbara Palmer, the project coordinator at the Center for Civic Leadership and Responsibility, is sure that this lecture is very important and useful for students because it is part of our history.
