Intro to Space, Time, and Relativity in Sprout Spring 19 (Feb. 16 - Mar. 02, 2019)
Do you want to see the future? I'll teach you how! In this class, we'll think through some fun "thought experiments" involving super fast trains, falling elevators, and traveling to faraway planets. Through our experiments, we'll learn about the wacky nature of time and space -- and the fundamental concepts of relativity as discovered by Einstein.


Build Your Own Website in Splash Spring 18 (Apr. 07, 2018)
Want to learn the magic behind how your favorite website is made and build one of your own? Take this class and learn how the internet works, and build a website of your own!


Calculus: The Math of Change in Splash Spring 18 (Apr. 07, 2018)
Calculus may sound scary, but the concepts behind it are approachable with just a basic mathematical background. When you're crossing the street, trying to figure out if cars are going to hit you - you're actually doing calculus. Ever wonder why the area of a circle is $$\pi r^2$$ - with calculus, you can find out! The concepts taught in this class can help you find speeds of objects, areas and volumes of crazy shapes, and more.


Thinking like a computer: Intro to Computational Thinking in Sprout Spring 18 (Feb. 17 - Mar. 03, 2018)
Under the hood, your computer represents all forms of information, including text files, movies, and music, as a long string of just 0s and 1s. How is this possible? Learn to find a piece of candy from 4 billion cups in just 32 tries, represent any number with just 1s and 0s, and spot bit errors with one glance.


Thinking like a computer: Intro to Computational Thinking in Splash Spring 17 (Apr. 08, 2017)
Under the hood, your computer represents all forms of information, including text files, movies, and music, as a long string of just 0s and 1s. How is this possible? Learn to find a piece of candy from 4 billion cups in just 32 tries, represent any number with just 1s and 0s, and spot bit errors with one glance.


Thinking like a computer: Intro to Computational Thinking in Sprout Spring 17 (Feb. 11 - 25, 2017)
Under the hood, your computer represents all forms of information, including text files, movies, and music, as a long string of just 0s and 1s. How is this possible? Learn to find a piece of candy from 4 billion cups in just 32 tries, represent any number with just 1s and 0s, and spot bit errors with one glance.


Thinking like a computer: Intro to Computational Thinking in Splash Fall 16 (Nov. 05, 2016)
Under the hood, your computer represents all forms of information, including text files, movies, and music, as a long string of just 0s and 1s. How is this possible? Learn to count in binary, compress lines of text, and find one name in 4 billion with just 32 tries. All without writing a single line of code.
