Splash! A Day of Learning for Teens at Amherst College

Amherst College Offers Workshop Program for Middle/High School Students

Splash! takes place on Saturday, April 20, 2019, a day of classes where teens can learn a variety of topics that might not be part of a traditional school curriculum but are beneficial to learn about.

Amherst College is offering a unique workshop program for middle and high school students!  Splash! takes place on Saturday, April 20, 2019, and is a day of classes where kids can learn about all sorts of topics (everything from knitting to neuroscience, nutrition to Arabic) that are not part of a traditional school curriculum but are beneficial to learn.

All of the classes being offered are being taught by Amherst College students whose personal and/or academic interests are in the subject area that they will be teaching about.  Teens attending Splash! can sign up for workshops in political propaganda, physics, psychology, chemistry, veterinarian science, social and environmental justice, indigenous resistance, and much more! 

Some workshops are best for students who have prior knowledge relating to the subject area (a course on the psychology of motivation, for example, would require some basic knowledge psychology), but many need no background knowledge and will offer students an introduction to the subject matter.  Workshops can supplement students’ academic work, or just be for fun.  Registration is required.
