Ada Lovelace is widely held to have been the first computer programmer, and Ada Lovelace Day aims to raise the profile of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) by encouraging people around the world to talk about the women whose work they admire. This international day of celebration helps people learn about the achievements of women in STEM, inspiring others and creating new role models for young and old alike. This Wikipedia editathon celebrates the spirit of Ada Lovelace Day by helping people learn about the contribution of individual women to the world of science, and to add to and improve the coverage of individuals, events and resources related to women in science.
