Ada Lovelace Day is about sharing stories of women — whether engineers, scientists, technologists or mathematicians — who have inspired you to become who you are today. Come 16 October, simply write a blog post, record a podcast, film a video, draw a comic, or pick any other way to talk about the women who have been guiding lights in your life.
Flag up notable female engineers – for example, 1940s film star Hedy Lamar who invented a technique used in wireless communications, and Barbara Liskov, a computer programmer awarded the “Nobel of computing”, or Karen Spärck Jones (1935-2007), a British computer scientist whose contributions to information retrieval are still used in many search engines. Give your heroine the credit she deserves!
