Women in STEM

Ada Lovelace Day

The second Tuesday of every October marks Ada Lovelace Day to celebrate the achievements of women in STEM careers.

Ada Lovelace was an English mathematician and writer. She is known for her work on Charles Babbage’s proposed mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. Lovelace was the first to realise that the machine could be used for more than just calculation. She published the first algorithm intended to be carried out by the machine. As a result she is regarded as the first programmer and as the first to recognise the full potential of a “computing machine.”

Me and Hannah are here doing are part for the ladies of STEM. Keep up the good work everyone else and always remember to keep inspiring young girls to embark on careers in STEM.

Happy Ada Lovelace day everyone!
