veski celebrates Ada Lovelace Day

14 October

Ada Lovelace Day is an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

As part of veski’s inspiring women program, and to mark this international celebration, here is a selection of recent articles about inspiring women in Victorian STEM fields connected with veski.

Ada Lovelace Day is about sharing stories of women working as engineers, scientists, technologists or mathematicians who have inspired others to become who they are today. The aim is to create new role models for girls and women by raising the profile of other women in STEM.

Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace, now commonly known as Ada Lovelace, was an English mathematician and writer chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage's early mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. Her notes on the engine include what is recognised as the first algorithm intended to be carried out by a machine. Because of this, she is often described as the world's first computer programmer.
