Splash at Cornell
Splash is a very open style of learning, designed to let students explore anything that they are passionate about. If you’re passionate about math and science, they have courses on gravitational waves and complex analysis! Perhaps, you’re more interested in the humanities and want to learn about ancient history and creative writing. Maybe, you’re just looking for things that aren’t normally taught, like an Introduction to Immunology explained in terms of Starcraft or four-player chess (known as bughouse). Their teachers choose their own class topics and content, allowing them to teach on what they’re most passionate about!
Courses are all taught virtually beginning on May 1st so sign up now! Find more information here: https://cornell.learningu.org/learn/Splash/fall2019/catalog#cat2
