This month, HBK was delighted to join Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry for two of its Black Creativity events: the Annual Gala and Career Showcase. The Black Creativity Program at MSI celebrates African American achievement in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics. Our attendees and volunteers were grateful to support this incredible program and share the world of engineering and HBK with others!

Black Creativity Gala: We joined a singular night at MSI to celebrate Black Creativity alongside over 800 guests. We honored and celebrated the extraordinary achievements of Black innovation and excellence while raising more than $690,000 in generous support of MSI's essential Black Creativity Programs. Our attendees were grateful for the delicious food, dancing, music, and experiencing the wonders of Black artistic vision to toast the next generation of Black leaders and innovators. 

Black Creativity Career Showcase: Our volunteers joined other STEAM professionals throughout the Museum's Main Level to talk with families and kids about the innovative work happening right here in Chicago. Attendees conversed with African American artists, scientists, and engineers, learning through hands-on activities and demonstrations. It was a fun filled day to share all about HBK and the engineering industry!
