Ada.Ada.Ada - Theatre production about Ada Lovelace - Full Price Ticket - 2pm show

£5.00

Description

Ada.Ada.Ada is an interactive theatre production which celebrates the work of Mathematician Ada Lovelace. The University of Bristol will be bringing the show to the Colston Hall, Lantern Theatre, October 16, 2017.

Ada Lovelace wrote the world’s first complex algorithm in 1843 and was subsequently written out of history. In Ada.Ada.Ada, Lovelace tells her story using an LED dress which she operates – live on stage – using her wearable tech satin glove.

The aim of the show is to inspire the next generation of technical innovators, and help people, especially girls and women, to engage with technology and STEM as a career.

We are working hard to close the gender gap in STEM subjects, and so we are asking schools to ensure that no more than 50% of the cohort attending are male. We would also like as many schools as possible to be able to take up this opportunity, and so we ask if you can limit numbers to 30 students per year group. (NB: Numbers can be flexible, please contact to discuss)
