Ada Lovelace Day

April Lidinsky and I want to help South Bend (and beyond) celebrate Ada Lovelace Day every year. It’s a day dedicated to getting to know Lovelace and her accomplishments, but also to recognize that she is a symbol for the many forgotten women of STEM. To join in, simply print out the badge below (or use it as your profile pic) and the resource sheet (to learn more about Lovelace and get some more info on women in STEM).

2015 is the bicentennial of the birth of Ada Lovelace and I’ll be expanding outreach efforts with the help of the Reilly Center for Science, Technology, and Values and the History of Science Society. On December 3, 2015 at 7pm we will be co-hosting a showing of the documentary Code: Debugging the Gender Gap in the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center at Notre Dame. I am also working on a collaboration with the St. Joseph County Public Library highlighting books on women and minorities in science and a “Reading Invasion” encouraging readers of all ages to read books about women and minorities in science in public.
