Ada Lovelace Day For Schools
13 October 2015£5.00
We will be celebrating the 200th birthday of computer visionary, Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace, with a mini festival at the museum. This will include two half-day sessions for schools and an evening event for the general public.
A series of activities, including keynote presentations, workshops, coding and trails will take place throughout the day.
Interactive story-teller, Zoe Philpott, will be with us to tell Ada’s story, describing her ideas about flying machines and computer programming with punch cards. She will lead workshops and bring along an amazing LED dress, the prototype of the one that will be featured in her forthcoming tour Ada, Ada, Ada, as an inspirational talking point! Zoe will discuss the creative technology production of the LED dress, and why they chose to tell Ada’s story using wearable technology.
Professor Carron Shankland will join us in the afternoon to deliver a special presentation for older students.
