UR Splash Day

Splash Day 2022 will be held virtually on February 19th. Student registration is now closed, but we are accepting walk-in participants. More on that below.

Splash Day is a day when high school students are invited to the University of Rochester's campus (this year virtually) for a fun day of learning. As a Splash student, you will have the chance to take hour-long classes designed and taught by passionate undergraduates at the University about a wide variety of topics. Some of the courses being taught at Splash Day 2022 are:

  • Mental Disorders
  • Quantum Computing
  • Intro to 3D Modeling
  • Intro to Cryptography

You will be able to pick from our catalog of classes and design your own schedule for the day during registration. Pick as many or as few classes as you like: you get to decide what you learn!
