It’s Introduce a Girl To Engineering Day! According to the National Society of Professional Engineers, “More than just one day, Introduce a Girl to Engineering is a national movement that shows girls how creative and collaborative engineering is and how engineers are changing our world.”

Supermodel (and Taylor Swift girl squad gal) Karlie Kloss started Koding With Klossy, a coding camp for girls and young women, after learning about app development.

Kloss says, “the idea that I could build something with code seemed practically impossible [before I took a class]. Within a couple of classes, I was working with my classmates to program a small drone.”

Kloss continues, “I realized that code is about creativity — just like art and fashion — and that women who have these skills have the power to shape our future.”
