COVID-19 Update - For the safety of the teachers and students in the Splash community, our 2021 programs have been made virtual through Zoom. All links to Splash Classes will be sent to students online after they have completed student registration and sign-ups through the Splash website.

Droplet

What is it?

Droplet is a one-day program for high school students to learn about interesting topics they may never have seen before in high school. Like Splash!, Droplet allows students to meet college students and other high school students in a fun context. Droplet is completely free to attend.

Where is it?

Droplet this year is being offered online!

How do I sign up?

Droplet 2021 will take place in January. We'll post a notification on the "home" page when registration opens. Check here for details!

How can I learn more?

If you want more information, please email us. We’re more than willing to talk, and promise a quick reply. Or, if you don’t want to email us yourself, ask a teacher or counselor at your school to email us.

Splash!

What is it?

Splash! brings high school students from all over Chicago to the University of Chicago campus for one Saturday in the spring. The high school students take short classes taught by college and graduate students in areas that teachers are really passionate about. The program brings together graduate, college, and high school students and exposes high school students to topics they may not be able to access in a traditional high school curriculum. Past classes have covered topics ranging from genetic engineering and dystopian fiction to dance and introductory Mongolian. The focus is on teaching unusual and engaging classes that keep learning fun. Splash is 100% FREE to attend.

When? Who? Where?

We are not offering Splash this year.

Cascade!

What is it?

Cascade! is a five-week program for high school students that exposes them to interesting topics they may never have seen before in high school. Like Splash!, Cascade! allows students to meet college students and other high school students in a fun context. Unlike Splash!, Cascade! allows students to explore topics in a bit more depth than a one-day program can allow and to get to know their teachers. Students take classes in one or two time slots, with several in each slot. Each class will meet five times, one hour every Tuesday afternoon/evening for five consecutive weeks. There will be no testing or grades, but there may be small amounts of homework assigned from week to week in some classes. Attendance at all sessions is required, but if you really must miss a class please be sure to tell your teacher in advance.

When is it?

Normally, Cascade takes place over 5 weeks in the spring. This year, Cascase will be virtual!

Where is it?

Cascade 2021 will take place in the spring, on zoom!

How do I sign up?

Cascade 2021 will take place in the spring, on zoom! We'll post a notification on the "home" page when registration opens. Check here for details!

How much does Cascade cost?

Cascade is completely free to attend. We offer free dinner between classes. There will be vegetarian and vegan options, but students with severe dietary restrictions are encouraged to contact us or bring their own dinner.
