Girls at the FUSE Coworking weekend club learned to code drawings and animations using Dr. Racket, a LISP-style programming language. For a final project, the girls created light-up clothing using an Arduino microcontroller, programmable LEDs, and the C++ programming language.
The Goodrich Middle School club programmed Arduino robots with the C++ programming language. A weekend club at Turbine Flats taught game development using the Python programming language and Codesters. The girls completed a community impact project by building a women empowerment website featuring inspiring quotes, stories, and the games they developed.
Girls Code Lincoln started as a branch of Girls Who Code. Clubs were held after-school at six Lincoln middle schools: Dawes, Park, Culler, Goodrich, Mickle, and Lefler. The girls learned basic programming and game development using the Python programming language on the Codesters platform.
