Wikipedia Edit-a-thon

Oct 25, 2016


BKL’s George Roussos led a session on 11th October on editing Wikipedia where participants learned how to create and update Wikipedia entries, focussing particularly on the coverage of women scientists in this encyclopaedia.  The event was part of the Ada Lovelace Day celebrations at Birkbeck organised by our Athena Swan committee. Ada Lovelace Day aims to encourage more girls to consider STEM careers and to support women already working in STEM subjects.
