Descriptive Entry
This accession consists of materials created and maintained by David H. DeVorkin, Senior Curator, documenting the video "Pathways to the Skies" produced by the National Air and Space Museum for Project SMART. Project SMART was led by George R. Carruthers, Physicist, to encourage minority youths to become interested in science, math, and technology. Carruthers believed that doing experiments and watching demonstrations was the best way to learn about science. "Pathways to the Skies" was produced by the National Air and Space Museum and distributed by Project SMART to encourage interest in the minority experience in aviation and spaceflight. Materials include correspondence, memoranda, scripts, notes, images, and background materials. Also included is a cassette tape copy of an oral history interview of Carruthers. Some materials are in electronic format.
