Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

I have one child who is in elementary school and another in middle school. Is there any way they can attend the same half of the day?

Yes. The day is split into two so that the activities offered can be tailored more directly to varying age levels and be more interesting for the students, so you are encouraged to register for whichever part you believe would be the best fit for your students. Families with multiple children are welcome to register for the same half or different halves of the event, whichever works well for you and your children.

Due to COVID-19 concerns I do not wish for my child to engage in any in-person activities at this moment. Will my child be able to participate?

Yes, definitely! This year's edition of the event will be fully virtual. One of our main goals is to make it as engaging and interactive as possible to immerse students in the activities while also adhering to the safety guidelines mandated and recommended by the university.
