Ada Lovelace Day

Ada Lovelace Day is an international day of blogging to celebrate the achievements of women in technology and science.

Ada Lovelace

Ada Lovelace was one of the world’s first computer programmers, and one of the first people to see computers as more than just a machine for doing sums. She wrote programs for Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine, a general-purpose computing machine, despite the fact that it was never built. She also wrote the very first description of a computer and of software.

To learn more about Ada Lovelace click here or Wikipedia!

Register your daughter TODAY for Expanding Your Horizons to give her the opportunity to learn from successful female science and technology professionals!

50 Years of Expanding Your Horizons

In 1959 girls visited one on one with scientists at the University of Wisconsin- Madison about their careers. 50 years later, science mentoring and workshops are still going strong! This group formed the first Expanding Your Horizons (EYH), a national organization that brings girls and females in STEM together to learn about careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Join Girlstart next April as a mentor and lead a fun, interactive workshop for girls at EYH Austin. Fill out the application here.  Help keep EYH going strong!

Check out the full article about EYH here.
