S335: Water you can walk on: non-Newtonian fluids in Splash Fall 2014 (Nov. 16, 2014)
Why does corn-starch and water flow like a liquid, yet you can run on it like a solid? Why does ketchup come out when you hit the bottom of the bottle? Why does not drip paint flow when you spread it, but not while it dries? All these liquids are called non-Newtonian, and as a result have some amazing properties. In this class, we'll discuss why.

X207: How to Conquer the World in Splash Fall 2013 (Nov. 16, 2013)
Do you dream of someday ruling the world? In this class, we will discuss the logistics of this dream and create a plan towards achieving our ultimate goal.

S131: Special Relativity in Splash Spring 2013 (Apr. 20, 2013)
Want to learn what Einstein meant by $$E=mc^2$$? Why nothing can travel faster than the speed of light? What a spacetime interval is? This class will give a basic overview of the theory of special relativity, including Lorentz contraction, the twin paradox, and the consequences on energy and momentum.

S77: The Science of Superheroes in Splash Fall 12 (Nov. 10, 2012)
If the heroes from your favorite comic books sprang to life, how would their powers work? How can the Flash move so fast? How can Superman lift planes without damaging them? Can you deflect bullets with bracelets like Wonder Woman? The answers and more through this colorful physics based class!
