Northeastern University kicks off the spring SPLASH season, with classes being held Saturday, March 18 and March 25, 2017. What is SPLASH you ask? SPLASH programs, run by university students, are held at colleges all over the country with the purpose of fostering the love of learning in young students. Students have many classes to choose from and they are on anything and everything. Parents can't select the class, the student chooses what is of interest to them. Northeastern's SPLASH program is for high school students and is offered free of charge, even providing lunch and a t-shirt for attendees. To register, click on the link through Learning U. To see additional New England programs and their program details, see the STUDENT/SPLASH section of our site.
