About Harvard Splash

Harvard Splash is run by Harvard Undergraduate Studies in Education (HUSE). Harvard Splash joined the Learning Unlimited network in January 2019. However, all programming is planned by Harvard undergraduate students.

The goal of Harvard Splash and similar programs is to make both teaching and learning opportunities more readily available. Through Splash, college students have the chance to teach a course on any topic they are passionate about and high school students have the chance to come on a college campus and take classes not traditionally taught in a high school curriculum.

We especially want to invite underserved schools and student populations to participate in Splash. We increase access by offering financial aid to those for whom the registration fee poses a serious financial burden. If you can’t make it to our program, check out all the Splashes part of the Learning Unlimited network.

About Harvard Undergraduate Studies in Education (HUSE)

Harvard Undergraduate Studies in Education (HUSE) is an officially recognized Independent Student Organization (ISO) of Harvard College. An ISO is defined as “a recognized group of Harvard College students who unite to promote or celebrate a common interest or talent in ways that are separate from formal course study.”

HUSE’s mission is twofold. First, we run an annual Splash to promote the love of learning to high school students by introducing them to classes that are traditionally not taught in a high school curriculum. High school participants also get a chance to visit Harvard’s campus and experience what it’s like to learn in a college classroom.

Second, we want to boost awareness of career options in education on Harvard’s campus through our various events held for undergraduates throughout the year.
