Please remember to bring the waivers

This semester, Splash at Berkeley will be hosting its 9th Splash program where high school students are invited to UC Berkeley's campus to take courses taught by UC Berkeley students on virtually anything. In past programs, exciting classes ranged from Introduction to Improv Comedy to Elementary Particle Physics, from Kafka and Monty Python to Graph Theory. Splash at Berkeley is organized and run by student volunteers.

Over the course of the day, you will get to be exposed to and learn about subjects you are passionate about or might never have known existed. You can participate in an oil painting workshop, or learn about the mysteries of the universe!
