Every day across the globe many brilliant women are busy performing vital and world-changing jobs in the fields of science and technology. And yet these women's stories often go untold, leaving girls aspiring to work in tech and science dispiritingly short of visible role models.

Supermodel and entrepreneur Karlie Kloss is seeking to change this by shining a light on some of her fellow women in tech who are perfectly positioned to inspire the next generation of female tech stars.

In collaboration with Ford, Kloss released a four-part video series on Tuesday called Trailblazers of Steam showcasing the work of eight exceptional women in tech and science. Each of the women are solving the problems of tomorrow and pushing boundaries in their respective fields with their work.

Each episode provides an insight into a different industry -- games, food, mobility and space -- demonstrating just how varied jobs within science and technology can be. Kloss interviews women working at the top of their fields, including former NASA astronaut Dr Cady Coleman, about their jobs and what it's like being a woman in their respective fields.
