Celebrate Ada Lovelace Day – Colorado
9 October 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
When: October 9, 2018, 12 – 3 p.m.
Where: The Gemmill Engineering, Math & Physics Library, Math 150
What: October 9 is Ada Lovelace Day, an international day of celebration of women and women-identified people in STEM. Come to the Gemmill and help us increase the profile of women in STEM at our Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon. No registration required! We’ll be adding and updating articles, as well as expanding stubs articles on the women in STEM that interest you. By expanding the awareness of women in STEM, we aim to create new role models to encourage more women and women identified people into STEM careers and support women and women-identified people already working in STEM.
We’ll have snacks and coffee, as well as a list of women in STEM in need of an article or an update and easy reference material you can use to write your articles. We’ll also have library staff on hand to help you with your articles or Wikipedia’s style guide.
Ada Lovelace was an English mathematician and writer, chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage’s early mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. Her notes on the engine include what is recognized as the first algorithm intended to be carried out by a machine. As a result, she is often regarded as the first computer programmer.
