Frequently-asked questions

Projects

Are the same projects repeated each term?

For clubs, some projects may be repeated from previous years (camps, events, etc), but we try our best to compile a brand new curriculum. TeenSci and TeenTech are the only exception to this rule, where projects may be repeated from year to year.

The EngSci Club and GirlSci Club share the same curriculum.

The Robotics and Coding Club share the same curriculum as the MakerGirls Club.

The Coding & Robotics Club (and MakerGirls Club) on campus and the Coding & Robotics Clubs off-campus share the same curriculum.

I am currently on a waiting list. What is the next step?

Our team will contact you if a spot arises, and advise you on how to proceed with payment. You can contact our team to determine where you are on the waiting list by calling the Engineering Outreach Office.

What is your behavioural policy?

If behavioural problems should arise with your child: an administrator will contact you regarding the incident, and if necessary, they will issue a warning.

If the problem persists or is unacceptable: the participant may be removed from our program. We absolutely do not tolerate any violence, bullying or disrespect in our programs.

If my child and their friend are both registered for the same club, will they be grouped together?

There are multiple groups within each program, so please indicate in the comments section of your registration if you would like your child to be placed with a friend or family member.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee any groupings (especially if the children's languages, grades or clubs are different). We will do our best to accommodate your request.
