Splash@UCSD 2020

Update (April 2020):
Unfortunately, this year's Splash@UCSD 2020 is cancelled due to COVID-19, however, if you are still interested in a similar learning / teaching experience there is a nation-wide online program known as "Rainstorm" happening on the weekend of May 30th to the 31st. Please check out the link for more information. (The registration will open on Apr 27th and will close on May 15th.)
Stay safe, and we hope to see you all in 2021!

What is Splash?

Splash@UCSD is an educational outreach program held by UCSD students through the Triton Engineering Student Council (TESC) that brings local high schoolers (grades 9-12) to the UC San Diego campus for a day full of learning and engagement. Our core belief is that students should enjoy learning about topics they are most passionate and interested about. We allow students to choose from a variety of classes created by our own teachers who are current UCSD undergraduate and graduate students. We facilitate this passion for learning by allowing our teachers to create their own classes. The teachers are allowed to pick their own topic and create their own curriculum. As a result, the classes are filled with information the teachers are most passionate about and what students may find most interesting. Past classes included Neuroscience, Martial Arts, and even Interstellar War! Splash@UCSD would not be possible without the support of Learning Unlimited. Donate to LearningU today to help start new Splashes and provide support to existing ones across the country!


Spring 2021; date TBD. The entire program will run from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm. (Check-in starts at 8:00 am.)

To create an atmosphere of independent learning, we ask all parents to not shadow their child throughout the event. Here are some adventures you can explore while your child is at Splash.
