Ada Lovelace

As part of Women’s History Month, a new holiday called Ada Lovelace Day is being celebrated on March 24th. Lovelace, a contemporary of the inventor Charles Babbage, is often credited as being the world’s first computer programmer! If you have a classroom blog, why not have your students write and publish a post about an inspiring woman in the field of technology? The good people at are collecting such blog posts as a way to encourage girls and women to pursue science and technology careers. In the meantime, you can read our FYI on Ada Lovelace and check out our Women’s History Spotlight to learn about some other inspirational ladies!
