The program is being run by Learning Unlimited, a startup nonprofit organization founded by student alumni leaders of Splash programs everywhere. We are leading a movement of university students teaching pre-college students about everything and anything.

Like Splash itself, we're going to emphasize a spirit of unrestrained learning and exploration. We'll share what we know, and invite you to share what you know, too.
