  • Does Sci-Tech Provide transportation to competition? Sci-Tech does not provide transportation to and from the competition, but we do provide staffing, shirts and snacks. 

  •  

  • What if I miss a scheduled class? The program builds week to week, but we understand conflicts may arise, and we will accommodate accordingly.  We do ask that parents contact Sci-Tech ahead of time to let us know that your child will not be able to attend. 
  •  

  • How many classes can I miss? Any student who misses 6 classes over the 15 week period will automatically be removed from their team.

  •  

  • What happens if our team makes it past the local competition? Any team that make it to the regional competition will continue to meet at Sci-Tech on Tuesdays and Thursdays until the next competition.  The additional class time, fees will be prorated based on the time between each competition.

  • Can parents volunteer to assist with the child’s Team and/or serve as an assistant coach?  We can always use additional support during the season.
