Tuesday 13th October 2015: Ada Lovelace Day Celebrations
Ada Lovelace Day is an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
Our University-wide Women in Science, Engineering and Technology (WiSET) group is working on a massive challenge to celebrate the women in our STEM subjects by trying encourage ALL our staff (men and women!) to stop for five minutes and have a biscuit break!
We are putting together Ada Lovelace biscuits which will be available on the Highfield Campus from 11:00-12:00 on Tuesday 13th October.
This activity will replace their usual coffee morning and is open to all the groups across the campus.
The biscuits are topped with an icing topper displaying the Ada Lovelace roundel, picture to follow once they are prepared!
They are free and available for all academics, staff, PhD students. The rules… everyone has to stop what they are doing for a few minutes, eat a biscuit and during that time think of any inspiring women within their field of research. They can also add a name to our database of inspiring women.
If you have any questions about the Ada Lovelace Day events calendar, or have any other problems, please email us. Please note that you CANNOT add an event without registering for an account or logging in FIRST.
