Sarah Morrison-Smith and Adam Poliak were awarded an unrestricted gift from Google’s explore CSR initiative to launch a program called “Barnard BEARS: Better, Enhance, and Advance Research Series.” Barnard BEARS is a workshop preparing Barnard undergraduates for opportunities in computer science research.



Nine students in Barnard’s inaugural Computer Science Summer Research Program worked with Barnard and Columbia professors on projects that ranged from improving inclusivity to healthcare.

On October 5th, the Barnard Computer Science Department and Vagelos Computational Science Center hosted DivHacks, the annual diversity hackathon created and organized by Columbia Womxn in Computer Science (WiCS).
