Location: Middlesex University, Hendon Campus

 

Schedule:

Wikipedia Induction: 11am-1pm in the College Building, CG45

Let’s celebrate the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) by creating new Wikipedia pages, updating and editing information on the WWII women codebreakers of Bletchley Park.

Ada Lovelace Day is an annual event celebrated every second Tuesday of October, whose goal is to raise the profile of women in STEM and to create new role models for girls and women in these fields.

Learn how to edit Wikipedia and use Wiki Markup Language (WML). Training and guidance will be provided by a Wikipedia staff member throughout the event. We also offer a special induction to WML from 11am-1pm at CG45.

This event is free, but places are limited and must be booked in advance. Please email Stefan Lutschinger, Programme Leader BA Media and Cultural Studies and Wikimedia Campus Ambassador at [email protected].

Participants will receive digital badges as validated indicators of their accomplishments.

See you there!
