Splash!

Latest Announcement
Splash 2022 will take place in-person, on the weekend of November 19th and 20th on MIT's campus. Register to teach by October 1st!

Welcome to Splash!

Since its founding in 1988, Splash has become MIT's largest annual teaching and learning extravaganza. For one awesome weekend this November, thousands of high schoolers will flood campus to take classes taught by small groups of people like you. Come be a part of this iconic MIT event!

Splash is fully student-run by MIT ESP, and all teachers are volunteers.

Teach Anything

Any subject! STEM. Humanities. Arts and music. Sports. Games and puzzles. Hobbies and crafts. Check out last year’s catalog for examples and inspiration.

Any format! Splash classes can range from huge lectures to small discussion seminars to hands-on projects. We also offer walk-ins for more casual "drop-in" activities like games or puzzling.

Who Can Teach?

Most Splash teachers are MIT undergrad and grad students. We also regularly have students from neighboring universities and other adults in the local Boston area teach at Splash. This year, teachers will be teaching fully in-person classes from campus. If this presents a barrier to teaching, we may be able to offer a limited travel subsidy; see this page for more details.

Unfortunately, current high school students cannot teach regardless of age or experience. Visit our high school students page to sign up to attend Splash as a student.
