In a partnership with the Flatiron Pre-College Academy, model and prized baker Karlie Kloss has announced a scholarship program called Kode with Karlie involving high school girls and learning to code.
The innovative program will be funded by Karlie Kloss and will enable 20 high school girls to participate in the Flatiron School's two-week summer coding course.
The course, which Kloss herself took during summer 2014, teaches young women the basics of coding and provides support in developing their own web apps. The Kode with Karlie scholarship program is accepting applications until May 1, 2015.
The intriguing partnership is a hugely important move by a supremely influential model and it's not hard to imagine that Kloss' participation will spark the interest of many fashion-focused young women.
