Ada Lovelace, a 19th century English mathematician and writer, is widely considered to be the first computer programmer; Ada Lovelace Day aims to raise the profile of women in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) by sharing their stories. To honor Ada Lovelace, New York University will be hosting the third annual NYU Ada Lovelace Day event featuring women in STEAM.
The event will feature women from a variety of STEAM fields sharing how they came to their current career paths and who inspired them along the way. There will be an opportunity for networking with the speakers and fellow attendees while indulging in food and beverages, as well as representatives from various outreach organizations. Come listen to our exciting speakers, model in our Ada-inspired photo booth, take home some cool swag, and maybe even win one of our raffles! This event is open to ALL and we hope you will join us in promoting women in STEAM!
