Ada Lovelace Day on October 14 celebrates the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Ada Lovelace, born Augusta Ada King in 1815, was an important English mathematician who is widely regarded as the world’s first computer programmer, thanks to her work with Charles Babbage’s early mechanical computer, the Analytical Engine.
To celebrate the day, the Melbourne School of Engineering invites students and staff to join some of our own engineering & IT academics and researchers for a lunchtime session talking about some of their own female heroes from the STEM disciplines.
Come along and be inspired!
Lunch will be provided from 12.15pm.
