Ada Lovelace Day is an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). It aims to increase the profile of women in STEM and, in doing so, create new role models who will encourage more girls into STEM careers and support women already working in STEM. Ada Lovelace was an English mathematician and writer, known for her work on Charles Babbage's proposed mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. Her vision of computing's possibilities was unmatched by any of her peers and went unrecognised for a century.
