A Brief History of the Universe in Splash 2017 (Nov. 18 - 19, 2017)
If the universe is expanding infinitely, what is it expanding into? How did we get to here? If questions like this have ever zipped through your mind, this is the class for you! No math or science background required!


Seeing the Invisible in Splash 2017 (Nov. 18 - 19, 2017)
How can we use photography to see the quickest, strangest things? Look no further than this class to discover. No math or science background required!


A Brief History of the Universe in Splash 2016 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2016)
If the universe is expanding infinitely, what is it expanding into? What do the center of a black hole and the big bang have in common? Will the universe end? How? If questions like this have ever zipped through your mind, this is the class for you! No math or science background required!


International Development and the Need for Evaluation in HSSP Spring 2016 (Feb. 20, 2016)
Around the world people are fed up with poor education, inadequate healthcare, and poverty. Some of those people have taken it upon themselves to work through governments, businesses, and non-profit organizations to address such misfortunes. In this class, we will learn about the problems these organizations face and explore case studies as a means of evaluation.


Intermediate Classical Mechanics in HSSP Spring 2015 (Feb. 21, 2015)
This course is designed for the enthusiastic high school students who wish to explore exciting topics in classical mechanics beyond conventional high school topics. We will start by reviewing the very basic ideas of kinematics and dynamics such as Newton's laws of motion, momentum, and energy. We will conclude with the advanced theoretical topics of Hamiltonian and Lagrangian dynamics. In between, we will study examples from central forces, non-inertial reference frames, gyroscopic motion, and fluid dynamics. Along the way, we will emphasize both theory and applications so that students can appreciate the intricate relationship between the two prominent directions of current cutting-edge physics research.


Introductory Electricity in HSSP Summer 2014 (Jul. 06, 2014)
This course is designed for the enthusiastic high school students who wish to explore exciting topics in electricity and have not had formal instruction in the subject. We will start from the very basic ideas of electric charges and conclude with fundamental applications to electric circuits and beyond. In between, we will study electrostatic interactions, conductors, insulators, and capacitors. Along the way, we will emphasize applications so that students can see the profound practicality of what they learn. Some of the potential applications that we will cover include superconductors and semiconductors. To further enforce the course content, we will spend a portion of the class getting students' hands dirty by constructing an automatic LED nightlight. This way, each student walks away with a little demonstration of electricity to show his or her friends.


An Introduction to Cosmology in Spark 2014 (Mar. 15 - 16, 2014)
If the universe is expanding infinitely, what is it expanding into? What do the center of a black hole and the big bang have in common? Will the universe end? How? If questions like this have ever zipped through your mind, this is the class for you! No math or science background required.


An Introduction to Cosmology in Splash! 2013 (Nov. 23 - 24, 2013)
If the universe is expanding infinitely, what is it expanding into? What do the center of a black hole and the big bang have in common? Will the universe end? How? If questions like this have ever zipped through your mind, this is the class for you! No math or science background required!
