Welcome to Splash!

For one day in March, high school students visit the NJIT campus and take hour-long classes in a variety of subjects, taught by NJIT students. These classes could be in topics ranging from neuroscience to programming to comic books, and are at various levels of difficulty. Classes start at 9 AM and go until 3 PM, and you can fill as many class blocks as you'd like in between. These classes are for you to get an introduction to any topics you're interested in! We offer walk-in activities for when you don't have classes scheduled: classes in our campus center that you can join or leave at any time.

You can view the course catalog, or go ahead and register.

Walk-in Activites

In addition to courses, we also have exciting walk-in activities for students and parents:

Survival Bracelet Making! Paracord bracelets are survival 101 - if you've never heard of them they are the strongest and most versatile cord on the market. Paracord was first used in the military on parachutes and today they're worn as bracelets that contain 100 feet of paracord gear, ready to be used in any emergency situation. Paracord can hold up to 550 lbs in an emergency and can be used to tie together branches for an emergency shelter, construct a raft or fishing tool, and even act as an emergency first-aid kit to assist after an injury. Stop by and learn how to make your own emergency survival bracelet!

Cursive 101 Do you want to refine your cursive skills? Do you want to learn cursive from scratch? Well now you can! Learn how to write both uppercase and lowercase letters in cursive and how to sign your name!

Islam 101: The Questions you Asked and More What does it mean to be Muslim? Many think that the answer to such a profound question can be answered simply by scrolling through social media, or by turning on the news. The tendency for media to simplify ideas and not clarify them is a reason that many of your questions are left unanswered! You will learn about the five pillars of Islam, and a way life that is shared by billions of people around the globe. Bring your questions, no matter how simple or complicated, and bring an open mind!

Drug Awareness on Campus

In a time period of rampant drug usage, addiction, and overdose, it is becoming more important for young adults to be prepared and informed about such a pervasive problem in our society. Many students are not properly informed about the subject which is a big problem due to the prevalence of drugs on a college campus. A main focus in this course will be about drugs on a college campus. Specifically: what to do in general if someone comes in contact with drugs (i.e. drugs at a party or a roommate using drugs), what to do if you or a loved one develops a drug addiction, what to do in the event of an overdose on a known or unknown substance and good Samaritan laws so people are aware that they won’t get in trouble and can save a life if they just call someone (New Jersey has this in place). The other focus of this course will be about general information about drugs such as basic pharmacology, drug classification (i.e. if a drug is a depressant, stimulant, hallucinogen, etc.), the short term and long term physiological and mental consequences of drug usage, the legality and scheduling of drugs (i.e. legal drugs, prescription drugs, and scheduled drugs), harm reduction (specifically about various drug identification test kits which is extremely important due to the fact that people overdose every day because they put a substance into their body that is actually another substance, LD50s, ), and the penalties for possession and distribution of such drugs.

Details

Every student must print out the liability waiver and bring it on the morning of Splash! It must be signed by the parent or guardian in addition to the student. You will not be able to attend Splash without this waiver.

Also have your parents fill out the WiFi form if you have a class that takes place in a computer lab. Here is a list of all 2018 courses that require a WiFi form. If you would like to use our WiFi during Splash, also fill out the form.
