Ada Lovelace Day Book out now

A-Passion-for-Science-coverAda Lovelace Day was on 15th October this year. It’s an international celebration of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths, comprising blog posts about women scientists as well as live events around the world.

The nice people at, the home of the Ada Lovelace Day project, have collated a set of essays on famous (and those perhaps unfairly overlooked) women in science, celebrating their contribution to many different areas, and telling their stories. The resulting book is called “A Passion for Science: Stories of Discovery and Invention”. Maths is certainly represented: as well as being part of a project named after a woman famously involved in mathematics, the book also contains (awkward plug ahead) a chapter on the mathematician Kathleen Ollerenshaw, written by the Aperiodical’s own Katie Steckles (me).

The book is available to buy as an eBook from the Finding Ada website for £5.99.
