FREEBIE ALERT: Educator's Copy of Hidden Figures

Back in May, I saw a tweet mentioning that Fox Connect was giving away free educator copies of Hidden Figures to high school teachers in the US. I hadn't seen the movie, but I signed up because I'd heard good things about it from pretty much everybody.

As we got ready to leave for Australia this summer, I started thinking about how I was going to keep occupied during the 16 hour flight from Dallas to Sydney. There are tons of movies to watch, and I told my husband that I HOPED that Hidden Figures would be one of the options.

The first thing I did after getting seated on our flight was check to see if Hidden Figures was there. It was! I was so excited I had to take a picture. :)

It turned out to be great. Shaun watched it as well on the flight, and we both really enjoyed it.

This week, my free copy of Hidden Figures finally showed up!

When I tweeted about my newly arrived DVD, I started getting lots of comments from other teachers asking how they could get one, too.  I love twitter, but it's so hard to keep up with things when you only check it sporadically. And, hello, we're teachers. We can't be on twitter 24/7.

So, I thought I would write a blog post here with details about how to order your own free copy so that hopefully more teachers might be able to see it and take advantage.

If you read the fine print, you will see that it is only open to US Schools that include 9th, 10th, 11th, and/or 12th grade. Sorry to those that this leaves out! Register here.

I have to miss two days of school next month for the Oklahoma Teacher of the Year announcement, so I'm thinking I will let them watch Hidden Figures. Normally, I'm not a teacher to show movies, but this movie has a special place in my heart!


  1. Thanks for the tip. I got permission from my principal and ordered ours yesterday :-)
