What is Splash?

Splash is a one-day event that brings highly motivated high school students from surrounding communities onto campus to take crash courses in fun subjects like the chemistry of baking, how to start a business, intro to neuroscience, and more. All of these classes are taught by Santa Clara students, giving them the opportunity to share what they’re passionate about, as well as enhancing their leadership and communication skills.

Who runs Splash?

Splash was created by SCU students who wanted to share their knowledge and inspire local high school students. Splash is entirely student-run. 

When does student registration open?

Student registration is currently open; students can create an account by clicking on the “sign up” tab in the top right corner. Class offerings and registration will be available in April, and reminder emails will be sent to all registered students at that time.

How do I register?

Create an account by clicking on the “sign up” tab in the top right corner of this webpage. You may register for Splash 2021 by clicking on the “register now” link on the learn page.

Do I have to fill every time slot with a class?

No, not every time slot needs to be filled with a class. If you choose not to take a class or are unable to get into a class for a specific time slot, there will be other activities available for students to participate in. 

Is there a way to get involved/volunteer outside of the teacher and student roles?

Yes! Volunteer roles are available. Please contact us at santaclarasplash@gmail.com if you are interested. 


How do I pay?

Online through the pay site. Splash 2021 is free

Why do you charge for your programs?

It covers food, cleanup fees, and all other expenses attributed to running a program of this scale. 


Can I register my child for Splash?

Students are highly encouraged to register themselves and choose their own classes.

Can I sit in on a class?

We do not allow parents to sit in on classes. Splash is entirely student-centric and the presence of a parent in class may detract from other student’s experience.
