Ada Lovelace Day

"I was really surprised to find out that a woman actually started technology- especially programming.." Student

On Tuesday 8th October we celebrated Ada Lovelace Day in the Computing/Digital Learning department. Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace was an English mathematician and writer, who was also the First Computer Programmer- an incredible achievement

Students revived 'Ada' stickers and enjoyed a special club at lunchtime. We celebrate this day not just to remember Ada, but all things STEM generated by her!

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.
