Splash!

Latest Announcement
Splash 2020 will happen virtually on November 14-15! Register to teach here before October 6.                          

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 virtual classrooms 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.

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, the virtual format means there are fewer geographical restrictions on who can teach!

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.
