We’re thrilled to announce that we’re partnering with Karlie Kloss to create the #KodeWithKarlie Scholarship. The scholarship will give 20 girls across the country free tuition to Flatiron School’s Introduction to Software Engineering course.
Karlie, model and co-founder of Karlie’s Kookies, started learning to code at Flatiron School in 2014. Since then, she’s worked to encourage other young women to explore computer programming through her work with code.org and through classes with fellow Flatiron students. While a beginner, since starting at Flatiron School, Karlie has learned the building blocks of code and applied her understanding of Ruby to program flying drones, compose music with code, and deploy web applications.
The Flatiron summer coding course for high school students is designed to teach the tools necessary to build dynamic web applications and understand core concepts in computer programing and product development using industry standard tools like Git and Ruby. By the end of the program, students will have built and deployed their own applications to the web, and gained a fundamental appreciation for the world of technology and how it impacts our daily lives.
