Splash at Northwestern: Spring Splash May 27th, 2023!

Spring Splash 2023: May 27th, 2023

Class times range from 50 minutes to 3 hours and 50 minutes, with 10 minutes between each class session to allow students to go to their next class. We generally recommend that classes not exceed 1 hour 50 minutes as we want students to be able to try as many classes as possible. There will be a one hour lunch break with free food provided to all teachers and volunteers. Even if you're not teaching until later in the day, come by to get food as thanks for teaching!

Prior to the event

Make sure you submit all room and classroom material requests before the teacher registration deadline! We need to approve all classroom purchases beforehand in order for you to receive your reimbursement up to 30 dollars. If you plan on requesting a reimbursement, please read the section "After the event." If you need specific AV equipment, safetyequipment, or other attributes for your classroom, make sure you request it as you're registering your classroom so we can find a room that fits your needs. In April, we will have a series of teacher workshops for you to get a better sense of the community you'll be teaching to and how to apply best pedagogical practices towards your lesson planning and teaching. This will be a great opportunity to improve your teaching abilities!
