The fundraising, which runs through midnight, is a part of Give to Lincoln Day, a city-wide day of giving where donations to select nonprofits are matched with a share of a $300,000 challenge match fund. You can donate here.

“(Students) are using Scratch, ROBOTS and being extra creative while learning teamwork and problem-solving skills,” writes Don’t Panic Labs’ Nate Lowry, who volunteers in the program. “We want to expand this program to even more schools, but we need your help.”

They’ve already taught more than 45 students to code during more than 100 hours of learning time for each student. Volunteers have taught at three Lincoln elementary schools. — Source: Don’t Panic Labs blog
