Homeschoolers - SPLASH Is Coming!

Massachusetts Institute of Technology

It's called SPLASH

Once a year, MIT students (in Boston, of course) put together an awesome program of entertaining and educational courses for just $30! It is an incredible bargain and more than well worth the money for up to 20 hours of class time.

Here's their shpiel:
Do you want to take a class about...

- Design and Analysis of Roller Coasters
- Paradoxes of Democracy
- Fun with Fractals
- Aircraft Jet Engines
- How to Make a Pixar Movie
- The French Revolution
- Stage Fighting

...or any of 400 other awesome topics?

Then you should come to Splash! Splash offers a series of short classes and workshops like the ones listed above, and you can take up to 20 hours of classes.

Splash takes place the weekend before Thanksgiving (11/21-11/22) at MIT.
You can register for one Splash class at 8:00 PM on Tuesday, November 3, and for an unlimited number of classes beginning at 8:00 PM on Wednesday, November 4.

You can find out more at, or email us at

You can also connect with other students who are attending by RSVPing for the Facebook event at

We hope to see everyone there!

If you aren't close enough to drive, then book a hotel room for the weekend and make a family getaway. If your kids can attend this (parents there are parent lounges you can hang out in) then they should do so - it's great fun and a really great experience.

My kids loved it.
