Ada Lovelace Day 2021- Celebrating Women in STEM
Posted on Tuesday, October 12, 2021 by Sarah Coombes — No comments
Today is Ada Lovelace Day, an international celebration day of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). A gifted mathematician, Ada Lovelace is considered to have written instructions for the first computer program in the mid-1800s.
Held on the second Tuesday of October each year, 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.
Ada Lovelace Day 2021 will once more be held online with a day of blogging, Twittering and Facebooking. Last year, #ALD20 celebrated women, advocates and educators in STEM. This year, they'll be doing something very similar, so follow them on Twitter or Facebook, or subscribe to our newsletter to be kept up to date.
