Supermodel Karlie Kloss has launching Kode With Klossy, a coding summer camp for girls ages 13-18. The two-week camp will take place July 11 through July 22 in New York City, July 25 through August 5 in Los Angeles and June 20 through July 1 in St. Louis (which is also Kloss's hometown). Applications must be received by April 30, and up to eighty young women will receive scholarships.

Kloss has previously sponsored a scholarship program for girls interested in development, and she has been learning Ruby on Rails herself. She told TechCrunch, "Before my modeling career took off, I really loved my math and science classes in school. My dad was an ER doctor and as a girl, I dreamed of following in his footsteps. Taking coding classes brings me back to the excitement I felt as a kid in first-period biology. I’m a curious person and coding allows me to think about how our world is built."
