About Us

Students:

Imagine…being able to take classes that were designed specifically for you. Splash! UMBC is striving to make that happen. At our April 8th, 2017 event, high school and middle school students will get a chance to embark on a unique expedition of learning. High school and middle school students will be mentored by their slightly older counterparts, closing the age gap that often seems to distance students from their professors.

All classes will directly engage the students in the subject of their choosing through interactive learning. Learn about the Chemistry of Flavor, debate Questions of the Universe, or learn how to solder in Volts and Hot Lead.

Allowing each student to select their own Splash! endeavors ensures that everyone has his/her own unique experience. By bringing students into a college environment to take classes specifically tailored towards their interests, we can build a community of students on the path to lifelong learning.


Classes will be taking place throughout the day from 9:30 to 3:55. From 11:25 to 1, we will be having our lunch break. During this time, we will also be taking our group picture for this years Splash program.

Teachers:

Please limit your class duration to 3 hours to allow students to sample other Splash classes. Thank you!
We want you to run classes about anything you like – cooking, dancing, economics, artificial intelligence, Civil War history, graphic design, or anything else you love to do. Share your expertise with local high school students by teaching for Splash!

There are a few ways you can get involved with this program:

  1. Be a member of the Splash! committee and help plan the event throughout this year (they have already begun!). The committee could help with the planning and administration of the logistics for the event.
  2. Teach a course, or assist someone else teaching (can be done in pairs or groups)
  3. Volunteer to help with tasks that need to be done on the day of the event.
  4. If you are interested in any of these ways to get involved, email splash.umbc@gmail.com
