Ada Lovelace Day - Celebrate with Lottie Dolls
Happy Ada Lovelace Day everyone! LOTTIE, alongside people all over the world on this special day - hopes to inspire future generations to become excited by and interested in STEM!
We want girls to "Be Bold, Be Brave, BE YOU!"
Ada Lovelace day, is the annual celebration of women working in the fields of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) and is named after English Scientist, Ada Lovelace, known as the world's first computer programmer. Check out our fun Ada Lovelace mini biography!
LOTTIE recognises this love of, and interest in STEM in our next generation of inventors, engineers and scientists - and has created dolls and accessories to reflect these passions, based on ideas from real girls, like Allie (USA) who inspired Busy Lizzie Robot!
Both Robot Girl Lottie and the Busy Lizzie Robot encourage girls to engage in STEM based activities, through play. Inspired by the story of Allie (age ten, USA) who tried to create a robot from recycled household items for her school science fair (then aged six!), the doll and accessory are part of the growing Lottie STEM collection. Erin Kennedy and Kathy Ceceri, esteemed scientists in the areas of robotics, also inspired the design of Robot Girl and Busy Lizzie.
