Celebrating Ada Lovelace with Nottingham Girls

On Tuesday 9th October, it was Ada Lovelace Day, an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology and maths, which aims to increase the profile of women in STEM and create new role models for girls studying STEM. To celebrate, we partnered with BioCity, NTU, the DEBP STEM ambassador hub and Futures to run a careers event for year 7 and 8 girls from Nottingham schools. 45 pupils from Nottingham Academy, Farnborough Academy and The Nottingham Free School listened to talks from women working in a variety of STEM-related jobs in the city, both academic and commercial.
