“Beyond just wanting to hang out with you guys, I want you to be a part of our big announcement,” supermodel Karlie Kloss told the four young alumnae of her Kode With Klossy coding camp. “You’re the reason we want to keep growing this.”

Karlie was referring to the coding camp she launched in a simple way in 2015 to inspire girls to learn to code and consider careers in tech. Before shooting a 45-second video, Kloss went around the room asking what her four young protégées had been up to since last summer. The New York Times was on hand to record the answers. 

Valeria Torres-Olivares, 18, from Princeton, N.J., was first to speak. She was accepted to Princeton University, where she’ll major in computer science. The room erupted into cheers. She also talked about the coding class she started at the Princeton Public Library with her younger sister Kyara, 14, a fellow camper.

“We made it girls-only so our students would have an environment they feel safe in,” Ms. Torres-Olivares said. “When boys are in the classroom, it’s harder.”

Karlie's Making Kookies & Not Koding As SpaceX Completes Historic Rocket Landing

After posing for WSJ's December feature on SpaceX and our analysis of the space race competition between founder Elon Musk (think Tesla Motors) and Jeff Bezos (Amazon), we thought Karlie might be cheering on her team's mega success space flight. No go. The closest Karlie got to hot flames in recent posts was a pic of her Kooking in the Kommissary at Momofuku Milk Bar. 

The South African-born Canadian-American business magnate, engineer, inventor and investor Elon Musk had a really big show yesterday when SpaceX successfully launched a rocket into space and brought the booster back to earth. Being able to recycle and reuse boosters -- which can easily cost $10 million a pop -- is key to making space travel affordable for the rich. 

When we wrote about SpaceX and Karlie in November, Bezos' Blue Origin had its own space rocket success story going on, also focused on reusability. .
