Ada Lovelace 1815 - 1852
This week our Famous Scientist is a Mathematician who my class read about earlier in the year. We all constantly learn new things and I hadn't realised that her name was actually Augusta Ada King and she was the Countess of Lovelace because she married the first Earl of Lovelace. My daughter was also surprised to learn that she was the daughter of the poet Lord Byron.
Hopefully you will also find other interesting facts about Ada Lovelace and discover more about her work and why there is an Ada Lovelace Day each year.
