World-renowned supermodel, YouTuber, and influencer Karlie Kloss shared with Disney her new journey with coding and created Minnie Ear inspired by her new hobby. Here’s a look at the new design and the secret code word you need to use tomorrow when purchasing these collectible ears.

Karlie’s ear idea came from her passion for coding, data science, and technology. Four years ago she attended a coding class and realized that women are a huge minority within the computer science field. To provide motivation for the ladies of computing, Kloss designed these Disney ears to represent women in the technological world, and in hopes to inspire more women to join the industry.

On the Kode With Klossy website, she stated:

“Before my first coding class, the idea that I could build something with code seemed nearly impossible, but after only a couple of courses, I was working with my classmates to program a small drone. I realized that, just like art and fashion, code is about creativity, and that women who have these skills have the power to shape our future – and often have. Women are essential in forging digital progress and knowing how to code is the key to exploring and creating the newest frontier.”
