Karlie Kloss Joins Campaign to Get Girls Coding
After walking in the Victoria’s Secret show in London, Karlie Kloss is winging back to the States to help girls learn about code. Like her fellow model and app developer Lyndsey Scott, Kloss is getting into computer programming—coding and learning how to fly drones at the Flatiron School. To encourage other girls to start their journey into STEM fields, she’s participating in Code.org’s Hour of Code campaign, which starts on Monday. Anyone can host an hour of code anytime, but the organization’s biggest campaign runs from December 8 to 14 in celebration of Computer Science Education Week.
Throughout the week, classrooms in the U.S. will be given the opportunity to join in live video Q&As with tech stars including enthusiastic student Kloss, Facebook COO (and MAKER!) Sheryl Sandberg, entrepreneur/actor Jessica Alba, and Tumblr founder David Karp.
Cotninuing the campaign, Apple stores around the world will host free one-hour coding workshops on Thursday, December 11. Learn how you can participate at Code.org, then get inspired by other women in science like Reshma Saujani and Megan Smith!
