Kode With Klossy, Powered by Barnard
Barnard is thrilled to partner with the Kode with Klossy team on a summer commuter program for high-school girls: Kode with Klossy Powered by Barnard will be offered from Sunday, July 18 to Friday, August 6, 2021. The three-week experience will teach web development and design, alongside a design-thinking approach, and students will walk away having collaborated on a final project that will demonstrate all they’ve learned. More importantly, they will walk away with the confidence and a community to support the ongoing pursuit of their passions in a technology-driven world.
During this program, participants will experience an expanded version of Kode with Klossy's distinguished coding curriculum paired with Barnard's Pre-college program workshops and activities, so they get a taste of the college experience and feel better equipped to navigate the college application process and college life.
- Program Dates: Monday, July 19 - Friday, August 6, 2021
- Virtual Orientation: Sunday, July 18, 2021
- First Day of Classes: Monday, July 19, 2021

A Day in the Life
On Campus Operations
Kode With Klossy Powered by Barnard is a Commuter Program, where we welcome students on-campus from the NYC metropolitan area who are able to commute to campus each day for the duration of the three week program. By participating in a Pre-College Commuter Program students are allowed to be on campus during approved times for classes and program related activities and students will be acknowledging their commitment to abide by a set of rules and behavior on campus.
Barnard has implemented many on-campus community health and safety guidelines and proactive measures to include:
- Individuals are required to carry their campus ID with them at all times while on campus
- Weekly testing requirement for Barnard staff and students
- Increased cleaning of high touch areas and spaces
- Sanitation stations throughout campus with hand sanitizer
- Plexiglass has been installed at all contact points (Dining, Offices, Building front desks)
- The College will provide a face mask to all students an as-needed basis
- Improvements have been made to the College’s ventilation systems
Student Life Programming
Part of the daily schedule on select days and after Closing Circle, students can join our Program Coordinator in activities which are fun, engaging and community building. Student Life programs are designed with the intention for our students to share common interests and create meaningful bonds with each other. Learning and growing does not end in the classroom, so our Student Life model is supplemental to the classroom experience.
Instructor: Rachana Raghothama
Rachana has been teaching middle school math for ten years. After majoring in Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University, she took a detour with Teach for America and never looked back. Four years ago, Rachana reignited her passion for CS education by founding a local chapter of Girls Who Code and joining the Kode with Klossy team as a WebDev instructor. The intersection of coding and teaching is where Rachana feels the most joy and gains the most energy. She is excited to join the Barnard team this summer.
Instructor: Abby Slovick
Abby is a first-year doctoral student at UC Berkeley studying the intersection of K-12 education and technology. Prior to graduate school, Abby taught high school math in Louisiana. During her years in the classroom, Abby used any free time with her students to teach them the logic of computer science. Recognizing how much her students loved these interactions with coding, Abby joined the Kode With Klossy community to continue teaching the power of code. Four years later, Kode With Klossy continues to be Abby’s favorite time of year! Teaching Kode With Klossy’s Web Development curriculum in cities across the United States as well as virtually, Abby is thrilled to be a member of the Barnard instructional team this summer. She looks forward to returning to her old neighborhood and for the opportunity to balance eating Absolute Bagels with her morning runs around the upper loops of Central Park
Instructor Assistant: Anna Lieb
Anna is a first year student at Wellesley College, and currently lives in New Jersey. She first joined Kode With Klossy as a scholar in NYC in 2019 and is so grateful to be a part of the community ever since. She returned (virtually) as an Instructor Assistant in the summer of 2020 and continued to stay involved in Kode With Klossy programming this spring. She loves working with students and is so excited to be part of this program at Barnard!
Instructor Assistant: Izzy Lapidus
Izzy is a first-year at Barnard College of Columbia University majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Education. She is an accomplished astrophysics researcher and outspoken advocate for girls in STEM. As a 17 year old, Izzy conducted research at the American Museum of Natural History where her team discovered brown dwarf 2M2351B. In July of 2020, Izzy began public speaking and leading workshops. Since July, she has delivered 30 talks sharing her STEM story, aiming to inspire girls to explore and pursue their STEM passions. After participating in Kode With Klossy as a Web Development scholar during summer of 2020, Izzy became passionate about pursuing CS and developing innovative approaches to CS and STEM education. She is absolutely thrilled to be an instructor assistant this summer, and better yet at Barnard!
