Engine Shed and SETsquared Bristol are set to bring a panel of women to talk about their entrepreneurial tech careers next Tuesday 13 October. The event is part of the tech world’s celebration of Ada Lovelace day, a woman widely regarded as the world’s first computer programme. The event will be followed by a coding workshop from University of Bristol’s Digimakers, who work to inspe the next generation of technical innovators, creatives and engineers by providing an introduction to ‘making’ in the digital world.

The panel, titled ‘Inspiring women and girls in STEAM’ panel event is chaired by Caroline Clark, COO of KETS Quantum Security, with four panellists:

  • Ajara Pfannenschmidt, user experience designer and information architect
  • Chen Mao Davies, founder & CEO LatchAid, VR/AR product to help mothers and babies commence breastfeeding
  • Sara Telahoun, Sustainability Consultant for Cities at Anthesis Group
  • Lilly Manzoni, Head of Research and Development at LettUs Grow

After the panel event, the University of Bristol Digimakers team will be running a coding workshop from 5.00-5.30pm demonstrating how to write a poetry generator using Python. If you are interested in signing up for this free workshop, no previous knowledge of Python is needed but some experience of block coding (e.g. Scratch) is useful.
