Many New England colleges are in the process of releasing SPLASH spring programs dates and times. SPLASH is a one day or weekend event, held on college campuses across the country, with the purpose of proving a fun opportunity to excite and engage middle and high school students in learning process. Classes, designed and taught by college student volunteers, are on anything and everything. Programs are offered free, low cost with financial aid available, or with a suggested donation so that cost is not a barrier for any student.
Learning Unlimited (LearningU) is the non-profit organization, founded in 2007, which supports these self-sustaining student groups to provide learning opportunities to school students. Educational programs offered throughout the country are listed on their website at www.learningu.org. STEM Advocates offered a quick list to many of the SPLASH programs available in New England with their dates, times and costs at under the Student section of mySTEMresource.com.
We have attended many, many SPLASH programs over the last couple of years and are very grateful for the wonderful opportunities provided. My son has had the opportunity to have exposure to many topics he may have not otherwise had the opportunity to learn about. If you're heading to this spring's New England SPLASH programs we hope see you there!
Welcome! I'm Debbi and I'm so glad you're here! As a mom of two boys I found it difficult to find resources on STEM programs for my kids. I spent hours researching which resulted in my kids having some amazing STEM opportunities. I want to share information with other families. I try to focus on free or low-cost events so that opportunities are available to children no matter their family's income level.
