B2503: So what's going on up there? in Splash! Fall 2012 (Nov. 03 - 04, 2012)
In this class we going to learn about the brain and various structures in it while also having the opportunity to look at some brains up close and personal.

L1524: Public Speaking Boot Camp in Splash! Spring 2011 (Apr. 16 - 17, 2011)
Alright. Public speaking is amazing. Honestly, without it, I wouldn't have even come close to getting into Stanford. It got me a few elected positions, allowed me to stand up to some really unjust policies, and leave high school with a bang. If you want to improve or fine tune your public speaking, this class is for you. EVERYONE will get practice time. EVERYONE will get feedback. EVERYONE will be taught some basic skillz. Small groups at first, then a finale in front of a large group. Now, this course will be no walk in the park. It will be tough. Including writing and delivering your own, 1-minute speech. But by the end, I hope you will be pretty dang satisfied with the results: your new public speaking skillzzz.

M1525: Intermediate / Advanced Programming -- Visual Applications in Splash! Spring 2011 (Apr. 16 - 17, 2011)
Know what an "if statement" is? A while loop? In my eyes, that classifies you as an intermediate / advanced programmer for your age group. But, are you tired of writing HUNDREDS of lines of code in Java and C++, and getting very little usable results? In this course, you'll learn how to put your programming knowledge to VISUAL use in a few short hours. We'll start by BREEZING through a game called "Pong", and then get into other, more interesting examples.
