NU Splash! - Opportunities for High School Students to Take Short Courses on Campus
NU Splash! is a student organization at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL., dedicated to providing unique and fun learning opportunities to high school students in the greater Chicago area.
It invites all students to participate in Splash!, an unconventional educational experience at the Evanston campus of Northwestern University. This event offers high school students from all over Chicagoland the opportunity to take short courses in fascinating subjects that wouldn’t be covered in their regular school curriculum. Northwestern students design their own courses on whatever subject they choose, from nanomaterials to origami to sign language. High school students will then choose their classes for the day, learning from Northwestern’s brightest and most creative undergraduates and grad students (maybe even a post-doc or two).
