Ada Lovelace Day is over!
After a marvellous 50 hours celebrating women in STEM, ALD finally draws to a close for another year.
We’ve had an absolutely wonderful day with lots of amazing independent events held around the world and, although many of them are over, there are a handful still to come. See what’s on in your area by checking our map!
