Ava Lovelace day

Today is a very special day for computing, but not just computing…

Every year, on the second Tuesday in October, Ada Lovelace Day (ALD) is an international celebration day 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.

Here are some links where you can find out more about Ada Lovelace Day and Ada herself.
