Celebrating Ada Lovelace Day at NHSBT Bristol
9 October 2018 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
NHS Blood and Transplant is celebrating Ada Lovelace Day on 9th October 2018 and we invite you to get involved too.
Ada Lovelace Day honours and promotes the achievements of women who work in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
The aim is to encourage girls to go into STEM careers and support those already working in these fields.
Named after the first computer programmer, Ada Lovelace Day is marked by events all over the world.
Who was Ada Lovelace?
Ada Lovelace (1815-1852) was an English mathematician who worked on the general purpose mechanical computer.
She was the first person to realise that the machine could do more than just calculations and created the first algorithm.
How we’re celebrating
On 9th October we’ll be opening the doors of our centre to female students of all ages in Bristol.
Throughout the day students will have the chance to visit a blood centre, see demonstrations of the careers at NHS Blood and Transplant and listen to talks by inspirational women working in STEM.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to attend.
The Bristol sessions will be held at 9:30am – 12pm or 1 – 3:30pm.
