On June 22, 2013, the Maryland Women's Heritage Center joined the Enoch Pratt Library in welcoming many attendees to the Baltimore Premiere of Heather A. Taylor's film "Breaking Through the Clouds".

With just a compass and a road map to guide them, Amelia Earhart and 19 other brave pilots defied convention by taking to the skies and racing across the country for the first Women's National Air Derby. Facing cultural stereotypes, mechanical failures, threats of sabotage, navigational challenges and endless chicken dinners, the women became pioneering legends in aviation.
Breaking Through the Clouds captures the women's personalities and portrays the drama of the race, stressing the importance the derby made for women, aviation, and the country as a whole.

For further information on this amazing film please contact Heather Taylor at hiphat@verizon.net or on Heather's Facebook page www.facebook.com/pages/Breaking-Through-The-Clouds/372261573332?ref=mf

On October 6, 2012, some 20 students ages 5 - 10 participated in the Kidgineer Program at the Heritage Center. Kidgineer is a project that offers classes, coordinated by Andrea Evans and her family to encourage students to become interested in science and be able to see themselves as engineers. At this Saturday event each student made a small robot, that actually moved when wires were connected to a small battery.  The students named their robots, told why they were special, and then took the robots home with them. Each student was also given a Kidgineer shirt for their hard work! It was an inspirational and fun program for both the students and their parents.
