Ada Lovelace Day Live! 2014 @ Indiegogo.

Ada Lovelace Day is an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). Grassroots events and activities are held all around the world and, every year since 2010, we’ve put on our own flagship event in London featuring presentations by and stories of inspiring women in STEM.

This year, the Ada Lovelace Day Live! flagship show will be held on the evening of 14 October, featuring performances and talks by structural engineer Roma Agrawal, geneticist Dr Turi King, mathematician Dr Hannah Fry, musician Caro C, TV presenter Konnie Huq, artist Naomi Kashiwagi, physicist & BBC science presenter Helen Czerski, and technologist Steph Troeth. It will be produced and hosted by comedian and science presenter Helen Arney.

And during the afternoon of 14 October, we are for first time holding a flagship event for school children aged 11 to 16. Ada Lovelace Day for Schools will feature talks and demos from roboticist musician Sarah Angliss, sustainability innovator Rachel Armstrong, paleobiologist Victoria Herridge, and neuroscientist Sophie Scott, as well as Roma Agrawal and Hannah Fry. It will also be produced and hosted by Helen Arney.

Adafruit contributed to the funding of this event, please help support this great event!
