"ThirdSpace@ gave me the opportunity to start doing work in the CS/STEM education space that I only could have dreamed of doing by my senior year. It has been a privilege to connect with peers, faculty, and the lovely Athena Center community to help construct a vision for the future of CS@Barnard. I'm excited to continue growing my project, Building Up Barnard CS (#BUBCS), throughout my time at Barnard and beyond." -- Izzy Lapidus '24, Computer Science
