Her Innovation Our Future

Educating and empowering girls strengthens climate strategies

  • Girls with leadership opportunities go on to create positive environmental outcomes for their communities.
  • Girls with STEM education have the opportunity to participate in green jobs and transform economic systems
  • When girls have greater social and political status, their communities have lower climate footprints

Closing the digital divide takes on new urgency as climate change worsens, creating new vulnerabilities for women and girls. As long as they remain excluded from opportunities and solutions, the consequences will be devastating.

Technovation Girls Curriculum

Youth, Climate, and AI

In 2023 and 2024, Technovation released additional curriculum units to support teams interested in developing climate-focused projects. These units include a technical tutorial to support students in using climate-related data in their projects.

We are particularly proud to have developed these units in partnership with Technovation alumnae, who were mentored by Natalie Lao at the App Inventor foundation, Dave Wolber from Thunkable, and Mark Friedman, the cofounder of MIT App Inventor.

An emphasis on artificial intelligence

Technovation’s curriculum also empowers girls to get familiar with satellite data, global and national data sets, and then to layer on on-the-ground information through mobile phones and low-cost sensors. We do this because we know that AI holds incredible promise…and that girls do too.
