S13414: Atomic Theory I: The Basics in Splash 2019 (Nov. 23 - 24, 2019)
From "opposites attract and likes repel" to why we say an atom has protons, neutrons, and electrons - an experimental journey into the basics of chemistry.


S13416: Atomic Theory II: Modern Concepts in Splash 2019 (Nov. 23 - 24, 2019)
Discover the reality of the quantum model. Figure out what stops protons from pushing each other out of the nucleus. Impress your chemistry teacher with these and more!


S13417: Atomic Theory III: Mostly Particle Physics in Splash 2019 (Nov. 23 - 24, 2019)
Break protons and neutrons into quarks and gluons, think about waves, learn about energy and the rest of the Standard Model. For pure enjoyment - topics you won't see for 4+ years. First half is an overview, the rest is pure math.


P12884: Atomic Theory I: The Basics in Spark 2019 (Mar. 16 - 17, 2019)
From "opposites attract and likes repel" to why we say an atom has protons, neutrons, and electrons - an experimental journey into the basics of chemistry.


P12885: Atomic Theory II: Modern Concepts in Spark 2019 (Mar. 16 - 17, 2019)
Discover the reality of the quantum model. Figure out what stops protons from pushing each other out of the nucleus. Impress your first chemistry teacher with these and more!


P12886: Atomic Theory III: Mostly Particle Physics in Spark 2019 (Mar. 16 - 17, 2019)
Break protons and neutrons into quarks and gluons, think about waves, learn about energy and the rest of the Standard Model. For pure enjoyment - topics usually covered after high school. First half is an overview, the rest is pure math.


M12888: Geometry in Spark 2019 (Mar. 16 - 17, 2019)
The essential properties of n-dimensional worlds. No classification of shapes, angle-finding, or proofs - just thought experiments about funky objects.

Z12090: Broad History of American Politics in Spark 2018 (Mar. 17 - 18, 2018)
From Federalist Papers about factions to the Constitution, Jackson, slavery, populists and progressives, wars, civil rights, conservatives, and Trump. The themes they love in AP US History.


S11694: What's the Matter? in Splash 2017 (Nov. 18 - 19, 2017)
