S13386: Climate Change in Splash 2019 (Nov. 23 - 24, 2019)
You've probably heard the term "climate change" tossed around a lot, but you might not be familiar with the science behind it and the facts behind what is going on. Well, we, the teachers, aren't familiar with it either. We have had a friend in Earth, Atmosphere, and Planetary Sciences make a PowerPoint on Climate Change that we haven't seen before and know nearly nothing about, so watch along as we do our best to explain it.

L12659: Fantasy World Building in Splash 2018 (Nov. 17 - 18, 2018)
Have you ever wanted to create your own world just like Westeros? Or maybe that's a bit too dark for you and you prefer Azeroth. Or maybe that's just got too many things going on and you'd prefer Earth, but with Hogwarts. Or maybe we're still too close to home and we should head to Tattooine. In this class we will be exploring what all of these worlds have in common and how we can build one from scratch. We will also design the blueprint of one in class.

X12667: Linguistic Relativity in Splash 2018 (Nov. 17 - 18, 2018)
A fellow Course 9 (Brain and Cognitive Science) friend has created slides on Linguistic Relativity, but it is something that I do not know anything about. So by "teach," I mean see the slides for the first time during the session and do my best to explain it.

S12691: How to Find a Planet ft. a Non-Astronomer in Splash 2018 (Nov. 17 - 18, 2018)
Want to learn how to look into the deep unknown and find extraterrestrial life? Wondering what challenges astronomers face in the search for other other worlds? You'll still be wondering after this class! I, a serious student in the department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Science with experience in planetary and small body astronomy, will be preparing slides on the basics of exoplanet detection and properties. My friend, a computer science major with absolutely no knowledge of planetary science, astronomy, or the relevant branches of physics and chemistry, will be attempting to present these slides and explain exoplanet detection to you without ever having seen the presentation. Come through for a fun - or at least cringe-worthy - attempt at science! I'll also be available for the last 20 minutes of class to answer questions and tell you about the real science on the slides if you want :)
