In our previous blog, we discussed the benefits of InnovateHer’s classroom activities, so today, we want to spotlight InnovateHer Online and why it’s a classroom necessity.

InnovateHer Online aims to provide more young girls and non-binary teens from ages 13-17 with the opportunity to learn and advance their Tech learning for free. So students can find excitement and inspiration and see Tech as a career path for them.

Learning is constantly changing and evolving. InnovateHer Online acknowledges that and has been built. Hence, it’s as flexible as possible for your students- students can participate during lessons, as homework or in an after-school/lunch club. You can also rest assured that content on InnovateHer Online is curriculum-linked, as we have carried out thorough research to ensure it links to your curriculum and hits Gatsby benchmarks.
