Ada Lovelace (1815 - 1852) is widely held to be the first computer programmer and the annual global Ada Lovelace Day celebrations aim to raise the profile of women in science, technology, engineering and math, to inspire a new generation of women in those fields.

The October 16th reception will feature short presentations by USM faculty Clare Congdon (Computer Science), Lisa Moore (Biology), Caryn Prudente (Chemistry), Terry Theodose (Biology), and Karen Wilson (Environmental Science).    

Please do join us for this free event on Tuesday October 16th at 2:30 in room 110 Abromson, 88 Bedford Street for refreshments and great conversation.  The event is open to the entire community and is intended for young women and girls who might like to know more about careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics fields, as well as their friends and advocates.
