Duke Splash
Welcome to Duke Splash, a student-run organization

Please see Drop Off and Pick Up Information sections, as changes have been made due to there being a Duke football game the same day

Duke Splash is a day-long event in which middle and high school students (7th through 12th graders) have the opportunity to take classes taught by Duke students, with topics ranging from dancing to engineering to art history to organic chemistry! We aim to foster a love of learning, independence, and creativity in all people.


Please make sure to bring all the necessary forms on the day of Splash.


This year, we will be charging a $5 registration fee in order to buy supplies for teachers and lunches for all participants. Payment can either be done online here or in person on the day of Splash. We also offer financial aid here .

Drop Off Information

Students may be dropped off on Science Drive at the Biological Sciences building from 8:30AM to 9:30 AM. If students are arriving at Duke Splash after 12:00pm, parents must notify the Duke Splash help room at (984) 244-1780 15 minutes before you arrive on campus. Students arriving after 12:00pm should be driven to the "Large Circuit" parking lot between South LaSalle Street and Circuit Drive as indicated by the red box on this map. In order to reach the Large Circuit lot, parents will need to drive along the “General Public Recommended Ingress Route” as marked by the red box on the map above.

  • In order to prevent traffic and conduct drop-off in an efficient manner, please DO NOT park in front of the Biological Sciences building. There will be other events going on at the same day. As you make your way to science drive, please look for our volunteers wearing Green splash t-shirts to help guide you during drop-off

Pick Up Information

Due to the Duke Football Game, student pick up will be moved to the “Large Circuit” parking lot indicated by the red box on this map. Please plan to meet your student there around 3:00 - 3:15PM. Duke Splash staff will escort students to this Pick-up location after their last class. Please let your child/children know to return to the Biological Sciences Auditorium (Room 111) after their last class by 3:00PM so that they can be escorted to the Pick-up area (we will also remind them the day-of)!
