Splash at Yale invites high school and middle school students grades 7-12 to come to the Yale campus and take courses taught by undergraduates on virtually anything. In past programs, we've had exciting classes including:

  • Kafka and Monty Python
  • The Syrian Refugee Crisis
  • Feminism in the Beyonce Era
  • Graph Theory
Splash at Yale is a program organized and run by student-volunteers.

Waivers: To attend the program, each student must bring a completed and signed waiver to the day of the program. Waivers for students under age 18 can be found here. Waivers for students 18 years or older can be found here. Waivers for both age groups can also be accessed through student registration. 

Furthermore, due to recent Yale policy changes, we can no longer accept verbal consent over the phone in the case of a forgotten waiver. If an unaccompanied student does not bring a waiver to Spring Splash 2020 and any future programs, they will have to wait in our student lounge until their parent can come pick them up.
