Sign Up for Splash 2017!

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. Teacher registration will be open from January 23rd, 2017 to February 28th, 2017.

What do I need to do when teaching a class?

Not much! All we ask of our teachers is to attend an Active Learning training seminar hosted by the Searle Center for Advancing Learning and Teaching on Saturday, March 4th 10 AM-12 PM in Tech C115.

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.

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!
