Description

International Ada Lovelace Day 2016 - Session 2 (1pm to 5pm)

  • Event Description
    Come join the international celebration day of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths for Ada Lovelace Day 2016.

    Join the Wikipedia Editathon training at 1pm and discover the thrill of creatiing new, and editing published, content in the name of Women in STEM. Did you know that only 15% of biographies on Wikipedia are related to notable females?
  • We will support you to improve existing articles and create new articles related to Women IN STEM.
  • Our particular focus this year is on Ada Lovelace's mentor, Mary Somerville, and on Women in Maths and female mentors everywhere.
    No experience necessary! All are welcome to add names to the list which is intended to serve as a basis for creating new articles in this important but somewhat neglected sector on the English Wikipedia.
