We are celebrating Ada Lovelace Day 2017

UTCs are proud to support Ada Lovelace Day on Tuesday 10 October 2017. Young girls interested in pursuing a STEM career can achieve their ambitions with a UTC education. UTCs are schools for 14-19 year olds which provide academic and technical qualifications with subject specialisms that include Technology, Computer Science and Engineering.

Students achieve great things during their time at a UTC with fantastic career prospects. Read all about our very own ‘21st century Adas’ featured on this page and follow our Twitter and Facebook channels as we showcase the 'amazing Adas' from UTCs across the country.

What is Ada Lovelace Day?

Ada Lovelace Day is an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). It aims to increase the profile of women in STEM and, in doing so, create new role models who will encourage more girls into STEM careers and support women already working in STEM.

Ada Lovelace (10 December 1815 – 27 November 1852) was an English mathematician and writer, chiefly known for her work on Charles Babbage's proposed mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. By writing the world's first algorithm for an early computing machine that existed only on paper, Ada Lovelace is known as the world's first computer programmer.
