Celebrating Women in STEM at Intelliware on October 9th
9 October 2018Free
This year, October 9th is a special day at Intelliware. This day is aimed at celebrating and educating girls and women about careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and STEM-related fields. Not only will we be hosting our sixth annual Ada Lovelace Day Celebration, we will also be hosting a Meetup for Toronto’s Women Who Code Organization.
Ada Lovelace Day
Ada Lovelace was an accomplished mathematician and writer, widely known for her algorithmic contribution to the Analytical Engine. Her plan to calculate Bernoulli numbers using the engine is now widely considered as the world’s first computer program. Thus, proving that the discussion of women in technology dates back to before the industry existed.
Ada has become a symbol for women in STEM fields, to celebrate her accomplishments, Intelliware invites local middle and high school students to the office to become more educated in STEM-based careers. The celebration will take place from 3:30 – 5:00pm, with an office tour, an informal discussion regarding the career paths in STEM and a surprise hands-on activity.
