Splash! Chicago


Teaching for Splash! Chicago

At Splash! Chicago, our classes are powered by you, that is, UChicago students, both undergrad and graduate! We also love to have students from other nearby universities teach with us!

We believe teaching should be fun and rewarding for both teachers and students! So, we invite you to bring your passion to the classroom, and teach about something that excites you! We'll find students that want to learn. We'll also provide you with training, and help fund any classroom supplies you need.

Teaching with Splash can be as low or as high time-commitment as you want. We have two one-day programs, and one multi-week program, so you can try out teaching before deciding if you want to want to get more involved!

Current Program

We are now recruiting teachers for Cascade 2019! Cascade is a recurring program that happens for 5 weeks, perfect for teachers who want to go more in depth. First year students are welcome to submit a class.

Cascade 2019 will take place from 5th week to 9th week. The dates of this program are: 4/30, 5/7, 5/14, 5/21, and 5/28. You must be available for all 5 days to teach for Cascade, or have someone willing to teach when you are not there.
