FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can parents attend with students?
A: Absolutely! In-fact we encourage it.

Q: What if I don't have an iPad, tablet, or laptop?
A: There are iPads and laptops available to borrow during class (by prior arrangment)

Q: What do you mean by "more academic"?
A: If you are picturing an old-fashion school room with a teacher lecturing at the front, and students frantically taking notes, don't worry! It just means that while we do lots of hands-on experiments, we also take a moment to look at the concepts (and yes, sometimes even a peak at the mathmatics) behind an experiment.

Q: My child has trouble reading/writing will they still be able to participate?
A: Absolutely! We work with students of all ages and abilities. Parents can also attend to assist.
