Ada Lovelace Day | Celebrating women in STEM

Happy Ada Lovelace Day folks!

Ada Byron, Countess of Lovelace was a mathematician and – along with Charles Babbage– a founder of modern computing. In fact, Babbage called her the “The Enchantress of Numbers” (as if her name wasn’t awesome enough).

 Ada Lovelace Day gives us the chance to celebrate all the role-model women working in science, technology, engineering and maths, as well as inspire the next generation of Lovelaces.

To get involved and find out more you can head over to www.FindingAda.com or check out our twitter account (@virtualschooluk) where we’ve been tweeting work from our very own women in STEM (that’s science, technology, engineering and maths) every hour to mark the occasion!
