It’s Ada Lovelace day tomorrow (Tuesday)!
For those new to Ada Lovelace Day, here’s the low-down:
Ada Lovelace Day (ALD) is an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). It aims to increase the profile of women in STEM and, in doing so, create new role models who will encourage more girls into STEM careers and support women already working in STEM.
There are dozens of (mostly online) events happening around the world, which you can find here:
Ada Lovelace Day: global events
Of particular interest to many of us may be this one:
Women in computing - Dr Carol Marsh
Free & online
Women started off as ‘Human Computers’, then with the advent of Electronic Computers, they became programmers. Women innovation’s in computing have changed modern life, but they have remained hidden until now.
In this talk by Dr Carol Marsh, Deputy Head of Electronics Engineering at Leonardo, which celebrates Ada Lovelace Day, we will learn about some of the women whose work still directly affects us today.
