ada-lovelace_custom-36235be92c6df0badbde6aed459cadf598131dee-s3-c85Mathematician Alan Turing (a favorite around here) is often thought of as being the “Father of the Computer”.  This could be argued to be true.  It could also be argued that the Father of the Computer was actually a woman.

See this great piece (including audio) on the Countess of Lovelace here:  The Forgotten Female Programmers Who Created Modern Tech (NPR)

Badging:  Listen to the article at the link (don’t read).  Write at least two paragraphs that explain the role of women in creating some of today’s modern technology.
