Celebrate Ada Lovelace with Rebel Girls
Celebrate Ada Lovelace and all-things STEM during Libraries Week by downloading this free activity worksheet from forthcoming Rebel Girls chapter book, Ada Lovelace Cracks the Code! Created with programme specialist Wogrammer, this fun activity will help young readers to connect puzzle solving to coding.
Published in November 2019, Ada Lovelace Cracks the Code is one of the first titles in a new Rebel Girls series of fictionalised biographies for readers aged 6-9. Brought to life with original artwork, this is the inspirational story of the woman who could have jump-started the digital age nearly 200 years ago and wrote what would become the world’s first programming language. This is the story of a world-leader in computer sciences, but it is also a tale of the importance of empowering women to make invaluable contributions in STEM. As Lovelace said herself: “That brain of mine is something more than merely mortal, as time will show.”
Look out for a special Libraries Week competition from Rebel Girls on Tuesday 8th October to celebrate Ada Lovelace Day for the chance to win the inspiring new book Ada Lovelace Cracks the Code based on the life of the British technology pioneer and an exclusive goodie bag.
