What is the cancellation policy?

We offer a 100% refund at any point if you're unhappy with the program. You can quit at any point and still get a refund no questions asked. 

Do I need to know my topic before signing up?

No! For both the science fair and research programs, we guide students in how to take their interests and passions and turn those into research and engineering topics. For the Summer Sprint, we offer projects of all different topics that hopefully cover your child's interests.

How much time do students need to commit? 

For the Science Fair and Independent Research programs, students will be expected to do about 2 hours of work in between classes.  For Summer Project Sprint, all work is done in the classroom. We have found that students who are able to commit more time are able to produce higher-quality results 

Is there any flexibility with the classes?

For the Science Fair and Independent Research programs, we will gather student availability information and use that to decide when we should host our classes. For both programs, there will likely be two classes held per week, and students will be able to join whichever one works best for them that week.

 

How many students will there be in a class?

The group lessons all guarantee a 4:1 student-to-instructor ratio and in addition, students will receive 1-on-1 time. 

What is the age range?

The Science Fair and Independent Research programs are recommended for students in grades 6-8 and higher. The summer sprint program has a range of challenging options for students Grade 6 -9.

 

What is the class structure?

The Science Fair and Independent Research program group classes follow very similar class structures. They will start with a 30-minute presentation that talks about an important skill and topic, such as selecting an idea or creating a research proposal or writing a paper. After that, students will have around 20 minutes to work on implementing the skill and applying it to their own project. Finally, we leave 10 minutes at the end of class to check in with each student 1-on-1 and give feedback.
