MIT Splash Program 2009?

What is the MIT Splash Program?
My cousing talked a little about it before he left and I am interested.
Does anyone know what is it all about and when is it in 2009?

SPLASH! is basically a weekend in November (the 17th and 18th this year) when a bunch of people (MIT students, professors, other people) teach a bunch of cool classes in various subjects at the MIT campus.

I've been going there for the past 3 years, and it's really fun. You don't have to take hard math or programming classes if you don't want to; there are plenty of fun miscellaneous classes as well as various liberal arts and social science classes. It's only $30 for 2 full days of classes.

It's meant for middle and high-school students. Parent supervision, however, is strongly discouraged to promote an atmosphere of independent learning.

Over the course of 20 hours during Splash, you can get your feet wet with a short introduction to any number of subjects—things you always wanted to learn, or topics you never knew existed. Or you can dive head first into an in-depth seminar or intensive workshop. The whole thing happens over the course of two intense days on the MIT campus, with classes taught by MIT students and community members.
