Girls Code Lincoln
Teaching girls about technology through creativity, community, collaboration, and confidence.

Girls Code Lincoln is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We strive to ignite passion for technology and leadership in young girls with the long-term goal of closing the gender gap in S.T.E.M.

We host multiweek technology clubs for 4th-9th grade girls. All clubs are completely free and 100% volunteer-run.
We partner with Nebraska organizations and build in-house curriculum to teach technology, leadership, and life skills.
