Registration Open for MIT’s Annual “Splash!” Program

Interested in taking classes on a college campus? MIT’s “Splash” program, scheduled for November 23rd and 24th on the school’s Cambridge, MA campus, gives high school students the opportunity to do just that.

Splash! is a program of Learning Unlimited (LU) that seeds and supports student groups interested in teaching high school students everything and anything. The program reaches over 10,000 students annually and is available at scores of colleges and universities.

At MIT, Splash! is the school’s “largest annual teaching and learning extravaganza,” with thousands of high schoolers coming to campus to take a wide range of classes taught entirely by current MIT ESP (Educational Studies Program) students. For more information and a full list of courses, visit MIT’s Splash website.

TA parent volunteer Leif LaWhite has volunteered to help coordinate transportation and lodging for interested TA students. Interested students and parents can reach out to Leif by email at [email protected] or by phone at 802-333-9670.

Registration for MIT Splash closes on October 31, so sign up today!
