Ada Lovelace Day: Women in Science and Technology

Ada Lovelace was a leading 19th century mathematician, daughter of the poet Lord Byron and, in her own words, a “poetical scientist”. She has left a lasting legacy as a role model for women around the world working in science, technology, engineering and maths. The Guardian is running a competition to share stories which celebrate the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths around the world. Go to:
