Ada Lovelace's poetic algorithm

COLECTIC

Workshop

Program a poem generator machine helped by Ada Lovelace.

Students will discover the figure of Ada Lovelace, the first computer programmer, and her analytical machine, which was one of the first computer gadgets. Together we will create a poetic algorithm that will generate random full of magic poems from names, adverbs, adjectives and verbs taken from a very special library. We will reflect on the women in science role, on the programming secrets, on language and on computational art.
