Ada Lovelace Lecture

To celebrate the achievements of women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM), staff and students are invited to a lecture in celebration of Ada Lovelace Day 2019.

Ada Lovelace Day promotes the celebration of the achievements of women in STEM and aims to increase the profile of women working in these areas, creating new role models and encouraging more girls to consider STEM careers. In 2019, this occasion will be marked by reflecting on the amazing life of Ada Lovelace who not only made an incredible contribution in the history of computing but also had fascinating literary connections through her father, the renowned poet, Lord Byron.

Her new book, In Byron’s Wake: The Turbulent Lives of Lady Byron and Ada Lovelace, has been awarded the International Byron Studies prize and her acestral home of Thrumpton Hall was also home to Ada Lovelace.

This event will take place at 5pm on Tuesday 8 October in A30 Arts Lecture Theatre, Lakeside Arts Centre, University Park. Refreshments will be available in the Angear Visitor Centre.
