Ada Lovelace Day: Celebrating the achievements of women in science, technology engineering and maths.
Augusta Ada King,
Countess of Lovelace (10 December 1815 – 27 November 1852)
English mathematician and writer, and collaborator on Charles Babbage’s early mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine.
Ada Lovelace Day this year will be held on Tuesday 14 October. Over the coming year, FindingAda.com will develop into a resource for women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), as well as for parents, teachers and lecturers who care about encouraging girls and young women to enter the STEM disciplines.
