Clark University students to host ‘Splash,’ offer free workshops to area youth on November 19
Clark University’s Educational Studies Program, a student organization, will host Splash on Sunday, November 19, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on campus at 950 Main Street, Worcester. This day-long event allows area youth in grades 5-12 to take free classes taught by Clark students.
Sample Splash classes include American Sign Language; History of Westerosi (on which ‘Game of Thrones’ is based); Fidget Spinner Physics; and Autism: Fact and Fiction.
Classes will also be offered in geography, history, economics, public speaking, photography and ballroom dance. Parents of Splash participants can attend workshops on secondary education. Lunch will be provided.
Registration for Splash workshops ends Wednesday, November 15. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Splash was started at MIT and has since spread to over 20 colleges nationwide, including Clark, Boston College, and Smith College by way of a nonprofit organization called Learning Unlimited, founded by MIT graduates. Clark’s Splash program began in the spring of 2012.
