Welcome to Splash!

What? Teach anything you want to high school students.
When? November 19-20, 2016, the weekend before Thanksgiving.
Who? You!
How? Register your classes now! You can also stop by W20-467 if you want help developing a class idea (see open office hour schedule below).

Splash is a two-day program that happens in the fall and will attract more than 2500 students from 9th through 12th grades. As a Splash teacher, you get to pick any subject that interests you and teach a one-session class. Your class can be from one hour to nine hours long and can be anything from a hands-on walk-in activity to a discussion-based class with 10 students to a lecture with 200 students. Splash is run as an entirely volunteer program.

Don’t know what to teach? Check out What Should I Teach? for suggestions and old course catalogs. If you want to talk about class ideas (e.g. if you don't have any off the top of your head but want to teach), you can also visit ESP in W20-467 during open office hours. We are open for discussion in the office from 10 AM to 5 PM on:

  • Monday, September 12
  • Wednesday, September 14
  • Thursday, September 15
