University of Liverpool free event to commemorate the life and work of Ada Lovelace, the first computer programmer in history.
On the 6th of October, the University of Liverpool is holding a free event for Merseyside students in Year 10 up to Year 13 to commemorate the life and work of Ada Lovelace, the first computer programmer in history. Please see the attached flyer. They are particularly keen to involve female students, so please send this to mentees on The Girls’ Network programme but also to any student who you think might be interested.
The 2-hour event (3-5pm) will be hosted in a virtual environment and will have a hands-on coding session for the students, as well as a chance for them to engage with different STEM professionals and ask them questions. For more information about the sessions and timings, and to register, please visit the Eventbrite page at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/ada-lovelace-day-come-and-celebrate-with-us-tickets-120057403927 .
