Ada Lovelace Cracks the Code
From the world of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls comes a new book based on the exciting adventures of Ada Lovelace, one of the world’s first computer programmers. Growing up in nineteenth century London, Ada is curious about everything, obsessed with machines and with creatures that fly. According to her mother, Ada is a bit too wild, so she encourages Ada to study math. At first Ada thinks: Bleh! Who can get excited about a subject without pictures? But she soon falls in love with it. One day she encounters a mysterious machine, and from that moment forward Ada imagines a future full of possibility—one that will eventually inspire the digital age nearly two hundred years later. The story of a pioneer in the computer sciences, and a testament to women’s invaluable contributions to STEM throughout history.
