Finding Ada

Thursday, October 8th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

I was so excited when my professor told me about this site, and I can’t wait to share it with you! Let’s dive right in, shall we?

Lady Ada King, Countess of Lovelace is hands down one of my idols.  If you don’t know who she is, head on over to the Who is Ada? section of the site. She is considered by many to be the first computer programmer for her work with Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine.

This website, Finding Ada, is the home for Ada Lovelace Day. What is Ada Lovelace Day? You’re right to ask! It’s a day to celebrate all the women around the world who have made achievements in science, technology, engineering, and maths. It takes place on October 13th and is to share the stories of women who have made achievement in the STEM fields so that they can inspire girls and women to participate in those fields.

One of the really cool events that goes on during Ada Lovelace Day is the Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon! People at York University are hosting a session to add women from STEM fields to Wikipedia. As a whole women are fairly under-represented on the wikis. But you know what’s even better? It’s Wikipedia, you don’t have to go to York University in order to add women to the wiki! You can do it from your computer where ever you are!  I  have been looking through what’s already present and making a list of possible women to add.

I thought this initiative to provide more role models for young girls who are interested in science, technology, engineering, and math was inspiring. I hope you will too.
