We’re rebuilding the computer science pipeline from the ground up. You’re the key.
HER Academy’s Teachers Empower Agile Minds (TEAM) Initiative equips teachers from all disciplinary backgrounds to inspire interest and increase confidence in computer science in girls and children from other underrepresented groups.
Specialized trainings to build the CS TEAM Across the Curriculum are also available for teachers who are interested in incorporating computer science as an interdisciplinary element in English, History, Art, Math, Science, and other classes.

We will send your information to CSU, and they will contact you to arrange direct payment for the credit hours in the amount of $576 ($144/credit hour).
Thanks to a Community Action Grant from Facebook’s New Albany Data Center, teachers in Franklin and Licking counties in Ohio can apply for scholarships to take HER Academy’s 2021 TEAM Trainings at no cost to their school district.
Our comprehensive three-part training empowers any teacher to become a computer scientist and to teach and adapt HER Academy’s computer science curriculum to their students’ needs. When you get in the classroom, you quickly become the expert on your students. We equip you with the confidence, subject-matter expertise, and ongoing community of support to meet those students where they’re at and give them what they need.
