Ada Lovelace Day

Ada Lovelace was a 19th-century English mathematician—widely considered the first computer programmer. She is credited with creating the first algorithm intended to be processed by a machine.

The inaugural Ada Lovelace Day celebration was held at Michigan Tech in 2012. This annual event is held to recognize the accomplishments and contributions of women to the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and to encourage young women to pursue careers in STEM fields.

Ada Lovelace Day is coordinated by a committee of faculty, staff, and students. If you have questions, or would like to serve on the Ada Lovelace Day planning committee, contact Renee Wells.
