Empowering the Next Generation of Young Female Innovators

Empowering the Next Generation of Young Female Innovators

October 13, 2020 is Ada Lovelace Day, in honour of the English mathematician and writer who is often referred to as the first computer programmer. Designed to celebrate women, advocates, and educators in science and technology, Ada Lovelace Day seeks to combat the invisibility that often plagues women in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art/design, and mathematics). A lack of female role models has historically been a problem for young girls, despite the considerable contributions of women to the rapid technological advancement we have seen in past centuries. Fortunately, things are beginning to change; this year, one of the Nobel Prizes in Physics was awarded to a woman scientist, and, for the first time ever, the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to two women scientists.
