Inspired by English mathematician and pioneer computer programmer Ada Lovelace, a group of volunteers are holding a 24-hour global event to create more biographies of women in STEM on Wikipedia and to teach new editors.
This combined New Zealand and Australia event on 12 October 2021 will go from noon New Zealand time (NZST) until 8 pm Sydney time (AEST), covering 10 hours of the 24 hour event and then handing off to Wikipedia friends in Asia, Africa, and the UK.
This edit-a-thon is especially for people who want to learn how to edit Wikipedia and create new biographies about women. There will be coaching available for the duration of the event with four sessions run first by a team in [Aotearoa] and then a team in Australia.
