Via email from Suw Charman-Anderson:

Ada LovelaceAda Lovelace Day has already begun in the island nation of Kiribati! One of the curious things about a ‘day’ is that, due to various dateline shenanigans, it’s Ada Lovelace Day somewhere around the world for a grand 50 hours. This means that you have plenty of time to create your tribute to a woman in science, technology, engineering or maths and add it to our collection.

To take part, just follow this simple guide:

  1. Visit and create a profile
  2. Create your story about your heroine, in whatever medium you prefer, and copy the URL
  3. Add your URL to our collection of stories here

You can also browse the other stories from our archives, via our map!

If you don’t have your own blog or website, please do feel free to use the comments on our blog post (below) as a place to add your tribute:

Let the celebrations begin!
