About Teaching at Splash

Teaching at Splash is all about sharing your knowledge and excitement with eager students. As a teacher, you offer a "class" on anything you are passionate about (major, hobbies, etc.). Classes can be in the form of workshops, discussions, activities, presentations, demonstrations, or any other format!

When is Splash?

Splash Spring 2020 will be held December  5th  and 6th 2020 . Each day there will be 5 teaching periods in addition to time for a break halfway through the program. In registering for the program you will be able to see the slots available for teaching and select those that work in you schedule. This year the program will be offered from 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm EST which is 9:00 am - 3:00 pm PST


What Can I Teach?

Our mantra is that you can teach anything! Many of our most popular classes are rooted in academic topics like neuroscience or coding, but we encourage all sorts of classes!
