Yale Splash

Teach at Splash!

We will be hosting our Spring 2024 Splash on
 April 6th, and teacher registration is currently closed! You can access the teacher portal here!

Yale Splash relies on Yale undergraduates to serve as teachers who pass on their knowledge and passions to New Haven's youth! As a Splash teacher, you can inspire eager high school  and middle school students by sharing your passions with them. You design your own class and can teach any topic you think is interesting. You can lead a workshop, give a lecture, teach a skill, or run an activity. You can teach one hour-long class (or more than one!), and you set the size of the class.

Need ideas?
For ideas on what classes have been taught in the past, have a look at our ideas page!

Right now, we are especially interested in classes targeted at our younger students who are in 7th and 8th grade. Teaching middle school students is an exciting and unique teaching experience, but it can also be challenging, especially for newer teachers. Please click here for tips on teaching middle school students.

What is the time commitment?
Small. Teaching at Splash has a big impact but takes very little time. Besides the actual time it takes to teach your class (one hour), you will be asked to attend a session with Splash administrators to go over teaching strategies, any questions you have, and receive feedback on your class idea.

Ready to teach?

For some tips on teaching a Splash class, take a look at this handout. As always, let us know if you have problems or questions.

Once you have signed up to teach for Splash, there is a mandatory form that you must fill out --  the Yale Health and Safety Form. Please forward your confirmation email to yalesplash@gmail.com! 


The tabs on the left will help you register to teach a class, come up with ideas for what to teach, and find more information and frequently asked questions. We appreciate having our teachers volunteer when they’re not teaching to help us to run the programs more smoothly. Even if you cannot teach any classes with this program but still want to help, we are also looking for Splash administrators! If you're interested, please contact us!
