Hidden Figures and EDF Energy

As part of our Pretty Curious programme, we’ve partnered with Twentieth Century Fox to offer tickets to preview screenings of the Hidden Figures film, as well as the chance to win books and copies of the film's soundtrack.

Hidden Figures is a story that many young women in the UK might not be familiar with, but one that we are keen to promote as it demonstrates just some of the incredible opportunities that women who work and excel in STEM can have.
