We’ve profiled Lenore Edman before for Ada Lovelace Day but she’s so incredible she deserve another spotlight! Lenore is co-founder at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories (EMSL) and you might have seen her alongside Super-Awesome Sylvia or know her many Maker Faire projects. I’m pretty sure I first met Lenore when she was co-staffing a table at a Maker Faire for Meredith Scheff-King, another of my Ada Lovelace Day maker highlights!
Lenore M. Edman (mrswho (_at_) evilmadscientist.com), a veteran bike commuter, used to live in Portland, Oregon, where her son Chris got to ride in her bike\’s sidecar. Abandoning wet for warm, she moved to Austin, Texas, where she designed and sewed her own wedding dress. Later, as a regular of the Boulder, Colorado weekly cruiser bike ride, she overhauled a mid-century Hawthorne ladies bicycle (named Stella) which she has only crashed once– and it wasn\’t her fault. Since moving to Sunnyvale, California, she has helped to popularize edible origami and has learned to make some wicked curries. Her college studies in classical Greek prepared her well for her career working with professors, librarians, engineers and scientists.
October 11th is Ada Lovelace Day! Today the world celebrates all of the accomplishments of women in science, art, design, technology, engineering, and math. Each year, Adafruit highlights a number of women who are pioneering their fields and inspiring women of all ages to make their voices heard. Today we will be sharing the stories of women that we think are modern day “Adas” alongside historical women that have made impacts in science and math.
