Students highlight Ada Lovelace as part of the Anonymous Genius Project

How a 27 Year-Old Poet Became the World’s First Computer Programmer

Big Think is partnering with 92Y to bring you a video series on female genius as part of its 7 Days of Genius Festival.

Check out this video about Ada Lovelace. The daughter of a mathematically gifted mother and the Romantic poet Lord Byron, Ada Lovelace’s understanding of computational logic was matched only by her interest in art and poetry.

But Big Think isn’t the only one talking about Ada Lovelace as a female genius. Students at Nightingale-Bamford School are celebrating 7 Days of Genius by sharing work from their Anonymous Project. As part of the Open Doors Leadership Program, every girl from Kindergarten through Class XII has researched, studied, and created a project celebrating the life and work of a female leader whose achievements have been elided by history.  

5 first grade students chose to highlight Ada Lovelace as part of the Anonymous Genius Project. Check out their awesome artwork!
