Make Your Own Butter in Spark 2018 (Mar. 17 - 18, 2018)
Come learn about the history of butter and the science behind how the making process works. Each student will also have the chance to make butter and customize it with various seasonings! We will have a tasting session at the end.


How We Make Energy in Spark 2018 (Mar. 17 - 18, 2018)
A brief introduction on some of the different ways in which we can generate energy.


Intro to Astronomy! in Spark 2018 (Mar. 17 - 18, 2018)
Come learn about space! We can talk about stars, black holes, extraterrestrial life, or whatever other night-sky things you're interested in! Spaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace!


Dimensional Analysis aka How to Ace Your Science Classes in Splash 2017 (Nov. 18 - 19, 2017)
One of us is a physicist. One of us is a mechanical engineer. We both agree that dimensional analysis (aka cancelling out units) is the single most useful technique for solving science problems. Come learn cool applications of the method for solving everything from high school chemistry homework to MIT junior mechanical engineering thermal-fluids engineering problems!


Waffle Making! in Splash 2017 (Nov. 18 - 19, 2017)
Learn to make waffles!


Applications of Statistical Mechanics in Splash 2017 (Nov. 18 - 19, 2017)
Statistical mechanics is a branch of physics that uses statistics and probability to understand systems of particles -- usually to understand phenomena like thermodynamics and heat. It turns out that you can apply the same ways of thinking to understand and model lots of complex systems and used for everything from weather forecasting to economic games to the brain. We'll teach you some fundamental statistical mechanics concepts from the ground up and show you how they can be applied to these everyday systems. Hopefully you'll walk away with an understanding of what your physics teachers meant when they said "physics explains the world," and a deeper appreciation for how different fields of science are all connected.


Drop the Base in Splash 2016 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2016)
Normal digits 0123456789 are boring. Learn about different ways we can represent numbers -- like binary, octal, and hexadecimal -- and why they're important!


Intro to Sorting in Splash 2016 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2016)
Have you ever tried to order a deck of cards? Was it too hard for you? Learn the best (and worst) sorting practices here and how we can analyze them! We'll learn about really basic sorting algorithms (like selection sort) and slowly speed up!
