Welcome to Splash!
For one awesome weekend each November, thousands of high schoolers flood MIT’s campus to take classes, taught by MIT students, on anything and everything. From music theory to Hungarian history to aircraft analysis, Splash offerings number over 400 every year and span a wide variety of areas. Want to take a class on origami? Lasers? Neuropharmacology? All are open to you.
Over the course of 19 hours during Splash, you can get your feet wet with a short introduction to any number of subjects—things you always wanted to learn and topics you never knew existed—or you can dive head first into an in-depth seminar or intensive workshop.
In addition to normal classes, Splash also offers walk-in activities: hands-on events where you can show up or leave whenever you want. Walk-ins are great for filling gaps in your schedule, and they don’t require you to sign up in advance (although you must be registered for Splash to attend). Planned activities include everything from modular origami to plushie making to logic puzzles to ukulele playing. There’s something for everyone!
