Ada Lovelace Day (October 9th)

Who is Ada Lovelace?

468px-Ada_Lovelace_color.svgDo you know who Ada Lovelace is? Did you know she was instrumental in the thinking that paved the way to the modern computer? Did you know she was a close friend and collaborator with Charles Babbage?

Well if you didn’t know do you think your students do?

Tuesday the 9th of October 2018 is Ada Lovelace day

If you want to generate some discussion I’ve added my  presentation as a free download, feel free to use as it as it is or to or edit it yourself!

Great for Computer Science and mathematics teachers or for form tutors! A good way to highlight the important role women have played throughout history in shaping the world we live in today.

You might want to encourage students who are interested to read this book too, a fictional account of her young adventures; The Missing Moonstone.

Enjoy!
