Ada Lovelace Day 2017 Indie Event

Celebrating Cake & Craft in STEM

Wednesday 11th October 2017

2.00 - 5.00 pm (drop in, stay a while)

The Atrium, Department of Biology, University of York

Ada Lovelace Day is an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths which aims to increase the profile of women in STEM and create new role models for both girls and women studying or working in STEM.

Come and meet like-minded individuals applying their STEM talents to the art of baking and crafts. Bring science themed cupcakes and mathematical meringues to share, and spend an hour knitting a numbat, painting a peptostreptococcus, quilting a quaternary arch, or borrow a crochet hook and start your own amigurumi STEM role model library. Alternatively, just eat cake and chat!

This independently organised Ada Lovelace Day event is part of a global celebration of women in STEM. To find out more about other events around the world, and more about Ada Lovelace Day itself, please visit or follow @findingada on Twitter.
