Happy Ada Lovelace Day geek girls!
Celebrated on October 15th, the day aims to promote women working in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and encourage female role models. It’s named in honour of Ada Lovelace, who wrote an algorithm for the engine in 1842 and is widely credited as being the world’s first computer programmer. (Robin note: She was the daughter of Lord Byron, a countess and called herself a poetic scientist)
To celebrate we want to know your favourite female scientist, engineer or mathematician past or present. http://bit.ly/2gWKB9
