Today is a special day for women and for science as today is Ada Lovelace Day. She is regarded as the first computer programmer even though she died at the young age of 36 in 1852—a time when computers were basically unheard of. This is because in her notes regarding Charles Babbage’s early mechanical computer, the Analytical Engine, she had what is recognized as the first algorithm intended to be carried out by a machine.
Ada Lovelace Day was founded in 2009 with the goal of highlighting women in science to help inspire women and future generations to become interested in science, technology, engineering, and math. The goal of Ada Lovelace Day is very similar to the goal we have at Smart Apparel—which is to inspire individuals of all ages to become interested in both science and reason.
We know that not everyone can go into fields such as science, technology, engineering, and math, but everyone can be interested in them and realize how important they are to a thriving society. T-shirts are a great way to promote a cause—so we have been creating shirts that promote science and reason since 2011. Our shirts aim to be fun, interesting, thought-provoking, and exciting because science is all of these things and more!
We want to make it easier for our fans to help us promote science, so to celebrate Ada Lovelace Day, we are offering 10% off ALL shirts until Friday! To take advantage of this offer, use the code “LOVELACE” at checkout.
