Two other notable STEM Femmes: Grace Hopper, Heddy Lamar.
I am sure
there are others.
We can thank Ms Lamar for RF technology that is used
in WiFi, cellular, Bluetooth, etc.
And for some good movies.

Kwartzlab Members List
Kwartzlab will have a table at Ada Lovelace
Day, which is a kid+family friendly STEM event. So far, Bernie, Ryan
Consell and Christine VanW (new member applicant) have volunteered to
man the table. Gillian is running the HelloWorldCamp table, and
Catherine will be at the IQC table. Everyone is invited to show up, hang
out, and help out at the table.
Join us October 15
for Ada Lovelace
A FREE EVENT CELEBRATING WOMEN IN STEM FOR ALL AGES
Join us for
a celebration of women in science, technology, engineering, and math
(STEM) at Waterloo Region's first official Ada Lovelace Day event on
October 15, 2013!
Victoria Park Pavilion, Kitchener Ontario
admission, 6 pm - 9 pm
Who was Ada? Ada Lovelace is known as the
founder of scientific computing and wrote a scientific paper in 1843
that anticipated the development of computer software, artificial
intelligence and computer music. Learn about and celebrate this
fascinating woman during Ada Lovelace Day: an event celebrated around
the world championing women in STEM. _For more information, please see
the attached flyer._  Here's what the program looks like so
Booths and activities are:
Kwartzlab - show and tell, club
Kitchener Public Library - making Ada Lovelace Day buttons
the Institute for Quantum Computing - Demonstrator units and summer
Discovery Square - City of Kitchener: kids activities
UW Games Institute - interactive video games
Edition - paper airplane station
Hello World Camp - coding station
Laurier Centre for Women in Science - activities tbd
will also be very interested in knowing about careers in STEM and I am
hoping that the youth ask questions about a typical "day in the life" of
a woman working in STEM.
The presentations will be:
University of Waterloo Computer Sciences: Ada Lovelace
Laurier Centre for Women in Science
Vinita Marwaha, Miovision
Augusta, University of Guelph
Elise Vist and Emma Vossen, UW Games
Stephanie Rozek, Hackademy
