Check out Karlie Kloss’s piece in Motto about why she launched Kode with Klossy, a summer camp for girls that will focus on teaching code. Check out the above video to find out how to apply!
Now, one year later, I’m excited to expand this coding initiative and launch the first Kode With Klossy summer camp. Through our camp, nearly 80 young women in New York, Los Angeles and my hometown of St. Louis will join a community of female coding students to learn the fundamentals of the programming language Ruby. The Kode With Klossy curriculum, powered by the learn.co platform and taught by inspiring teachers, is designed to be fun, hands-on and collaborative. Through teamwork and creativity, each student will learn how to use code to build a web app that expresses her personal passions. I’m eager to share this transformative experience with this summer’s group of Kode With Klossy scholars and to continue to grow and build this community of bright young women.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
