The History

Splash! Chicago was founded in 2007 by: Luke Joyner, Race Wright, Anya Thetford, and Nalika Vasudevan. We were inspired by the Educational Studies Program at MIT, which ran their first Splash in 1988 and has had a Cascade-like program since 1957. Our first Splash ran in Fall 2007 under the oversight of the Civic Knowledge Project, and our first Cascade took place in Winter 2009. Our umbrella organization Learning Unlimitedwas started in 2009 out of a shared desire between organizers at MIT, Stanford, and UChicago to spread Splash to other universities.
