I'm interested in signing up! What do I do?

We're excited to have you on board! Splash couldn't function without volunteer teachers like yourself teaching the classes you want to teach.

Before registering a class, sign up for an account on our website here.

Afterwards, fill out your teacher availability and describe the class you want to teach here.

UPDATE 3/7/2019: Unfortuately, teacher registration is closed for Splash 2019. If you wanted to teach but missed out this year, we'd love to have you at next year's Splash!

What do I need to do when teaching a class?

Not much! All we ask of our teachers is to attend a required training seminar in February.

Many people prepare PowerPoints or handouts before their class. Splash will reimburse up to 30 dollars with appropriate documentations and budget so you don't have to break the bank with class material. We'll also provide AV equipment or work with you to make sure the classroom is appropriate for the class you want to teach.

What is the training seminar?

The training seminar is required for all teachers. We have included new material this year to demonstrate how to design classes to be engaging and fruitful experience for both students and teachers.

When and where is the training seminar?

February 24th
10 AM - 12 PM
Tech C115

March 4th
6 PM - 8 PM
Tech C115

This seems cool, but I don't have any class ideas.

Not sure what to teach? Find some IDEAS here.

I'm not sure if my class is appropriate. What should I do?

You can pretty much teach any class that is appropriate to high school students (so something you'd be comfortable talking about to a stranger). The Splash directors will normally approve your class unless there's serious concern about the topic or safety for the students. We aim to present topics that are balanced and agnostic, so if you want to talk about a more controversial topic, please describe how you'll be fair to both sides of the argument. If you're planning on doing some cool experiments, let us know if there are any safety concerns!

I'm done registering my class! Now what?

Keep a tab on your class enrollment and update any information here. This is also a good way to get in touch with your students!

If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with the directors at splash@u.northwestern.edu. We would love to work with you to make your class work!
