Splash 2020-2021: TBD

Class times will 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. 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, safety equipment, 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 March and 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!

Dates to Remember

Teaching Info Sessions

Unfortunately, our info sessions have already been held in February. That said, if you are still interested in learning about Splash, we highly encourage you to attend our Training Seminars! If you are interested in the content presented at those info sessions, please click here!

Teaching Seminars

If you need help developing your class, don't worry! We will be holding mandatory teacher training seminars to help you develop your curriculum in preparation for Splash!

We have made a portion of the teacher training seminar available online here:
Splash at Northwestern Teacher Training Video

However, attending the in-person teacher training seminar is still mandatory. We will have information specific to each year's Splash event, as well as additional exercises to help you further refine your class ideas!

Locations and times are TBD.

Day of the event

On the day of the event, we ask that teachers check in at least half an hour before your first class so that we know that you're present and ready to teach. This is also when you'll get important information like your class roster and where you can pick up your free Splash t-shirt! Lunch will be provided.

After the event

Please keep all itemized receipts. The itemized receipts will need to contain the following:

  • What was purchased
  • When it was purchased
  • Where it was purchased (address and phone number)
  • A zero balance or paid in full

During the event, we'll distribute reimbursement forms and after your reimbursement request is approved, you can pick up your reimbursement from the Cashier's Office in Norris. Please note: We are unable to reimburse for sales taxes because of university policy.
