Hello again from the MIT Educational Studies Program!
Thank you for signing up at <http://esp.mit.edu>. You are receiving
this email because you wanted to learn more about the programs we
run—for example, Spark, a day-long extravaganza of classes and
activities on the MIT campus! You can read more about Spark at our
*IMPORTANT SPARK DATES*
Spark will run on *March 12th*. The first classes will *begin at 9AM*
and all classes will *end by 7PM*. The whole program costs $20,
regardless of how many classes you take.
As with Splash 2010, registration will be a two part process. The first
part will be a lottery. The lottery will open *February 16th* and close
on *February 24th*. You can indicate your preferences at any time during
that interval --- registering earlier gives no advantage.
The second part will be first-come first-served registration. That will
open at *8PM on March 1st* and close on *March 7th*. During that time
you will be able to change classes or add a new class to a vacant time slot.
*SPARK WALK-IN SEMINARS*
As with Splash 2010, Spark will be offering walk-in seminars. If you
find yourself with nothing to do between classes or want a break from
the ordinary lectures, come over to the walk-in seminars and learn
something fun! You don’t need to register for seminars. Just drop by
whenever you have some free time and play a game of Set, make yourself a
duct tape wallet, learn to DJ, or do a little acting!
If you have any questions, please check out our FAQ about the
Splash/Spark registration process at

is not answered on that page, please feel free to email us at
