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 a 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!

Given our responsibility to these entities, occasionally we may ask teachers to modify their classes.
