We had an awesome time filming with our friends at The Flatiron School to help launch Kode With Klossy, a scholarship program and summer camp dedicated to teaching young girls the life-changing power of coding. Karlie Kloss fell in love with computer science when she attended a two week program at The Flatiron School and has made it her mission to bring computer science education to young women across the country. Last summer, Karlie created #KodewithKarlie, a scholarship program that gave 21 girls the opportunity to attend the Flatiron School’s two week intensive coding course (Watch a recap of her program here). This year, she’s taking it even further by launching Kode with Klossy; a summer camp that will teach up to 80 young women in New York, Los Angeles, and her own hometown, St. Louis, Missouri, the fundamentals of coding, software engineering and web development.
Check out some of our favorite moments from the shoot.
“If you can learn how to write code, or at least, gain an understanding of how it works at a high level, then you open yourself up to more opportunities in your career and life. We need more women studying code in school and working as programmers in every industry. As technology changes the way our world operates, tech companies will have more influence on our lives — it’s important that women are part of that equation. My goal is for Kode With Klossy to introduce and teach coding to a handful of the girls who will make up that next generation of change-makers.”
