Founded in 2008, Ada Lovelace Day is an annual event that champions the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). It remembers the woman who made history when she created the first computer programme in 1883.

To mark the day, Lighthouse is proud to be hosting Curiosity Hub’s range of creative digital workshops for girls aged from six years old and up. Sponsored by American Express, Girls Get Digital invites girls to try robotics, animation, website-building and games through a series of fun sessions.

These include:

  • Building a ‘hungry alligator’ robot, then bringing it to life using simple visual programming.
  • Learning how to create a webpage using basic HTML.
  • Assembling a robotic arm.
  • Designing a computer game and programming characters to move and score points.
  • Creating an animation with stop-motion technology and video-editing.

Curiosity Hub wants to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers by encouraging kids and teenagers to explore the world around them. It aims to enrich formal science and technology education through engaging, hands-on activities that enhance children’s learning and excite their minds.

Date: Saturday 11 October 2014
Venue: Lighthouse, 28 Kensington Street, BN1 4AJ
Times: 10am – 3.15pm
Tickets: FREE.
