Ada Lovelace Day Live! 2018

This year’s Ada Lovelace Day Live!, our annual ‘science cabaret’ in celebration of women in STEM, will held at The IET on the evening of Tuesday 9 October. Playing host to the UK’s most fabulous women in STEM, ALD Live is an entertaining evening of geekery, comedy and music suitable for everyone over the age of 12.

If you’d like a taster, our videos from 2017 are available on YouTube, where you can also take a look at talks from 201620152014 and 2013 

We will be announcing our speakers for this year very soon, but if you want to be amongst the first to know, sign up to our newsletter, follow us on Twitter, or like our Facebook page!
