Ada Lovelace Day Live 2022

The 11th of October 2022 was the 13th international Ada Lovelace day and to celebrate there was a fabulous evening of STEM talks about everything from neuroscience to poo engineering to the science of the human voice at Ada Lovelace Day Live Online! 

The online event was opened by Finding Ada Lovelace Day founder Suw Charman-Anderson and the event’s compere was geek songstress and stand-up comedian, Helen Arney.  I had the privilege of being part of the amazing line-up and my talk was on how we can support children and adults to enjoy and feel more confident doing maths.
