New this year:
In the interest of tailoring classes to specific age groups and optimizing student engagement with class material, Spring Sprout will be exclusively for middle school students (grades 7-8).
As a Sprout teacher, you can inspire eager 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 either a 1 hour core class that meets for all three weeks of the program or a one-time 1 hour elective.
For ideas on what classes have been taught in the past, have a look at our ideas page!
What is the time commitment?
Teaching at Sprout has a big impact but it takes very little time. Besides the actual time it takes to teach your class, you may be asked to attend a session with a Splash organizer to go over any questions you have and receive feedback on your class idea. We will provide you with a t-shirt and food as tokens of our appreciation.

When: February 11 th, 18th, and 25th
