Ada Lovelace Day is a global celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). Every year we host an exciting science cabaret event in London featuring awesome STEM women renowned in their fields. You can see videos of 2013’s event on your YouTube channel, and some of 2014’s videos on the Royal Institution of Great Britain’s YouTube channel.
Around the globe local groups organise independent events to mark Ada Lovelace Day, which this year is on 13 October. In 2014, there were over 65 grassroots events in 13 countries on 5 continents, and in 2015 we’re hoping for even more!
This year is the 200th anniversary of Ada Lovelace’s birth, and it marks the year we aim to expand our activities beyond the events of the Day. We want to increase the amount of work we do throughout the year to support women studying or working in the STEM fields.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
