Ada, that’s ADA Lovelace

It’s International Ada Lovelace day today, and as a fully fledged computer science teacher (and a bit of a feminist on the side) my classes today were filled with projects on investigating and creating something for the findingada.com website.

Cue fun lessons and me getting totally overexcited about why the Difference Engine and Analytical Engine were so important. They created some stunning stuff.

….. It’s all fun and games until someone Googles her name without the Ada bit….

“Miss, is this her?!”
“No. DO NOT click that!!!”
