Frequently Asked Questions

1. How many days do we need?

This depends on several factors: which program you choose, how many classes you have, class size, and how flexible your scheduling is. Generally for Simple Machines and Georgia Habitats up to 4 classes can fit in one day and 8 can fit in two days. To ensure that each student receives a quality experience, we can only accommodate one class at a time (no larger than 30 students in a class). If you need help figuring out how many days you need, please call us and we can work it out together.

2. When do you set up the program?

We set up our program the day before we present it. We can come during the school day or we can come when the students are done for the day.

3. What time can you start?

Since we set up the day before the program, we can get started as soon as possible.

4. How do I reserve a date?

Making a reservation for your program is easy. You can email or call us to reserve your date or fill out our booking request online. Once we have confirmed the dates you want are available, a confirmation email will be sent to you confirming the date(s). Once you receive that, your reservation has been made.

5. Do I have to send a deposit?

No, we do not require any deposit.

6. How do we pay you for the program?

We will send an invoice to you and your school’s bookkeeper approximately 30 days before the program. You can mail us a check to the mailing address on the invoice. We will need to be paid BEFORE we come to present the program.

7. What if I have to cancel my reservation?

Just let us know. We appreciate as much advance notice as possible, but we understand that plans can change. Programs cancelled less than one month ahead of time will be charged a $50 cancellation fee. This is to cover our costs in sending out materials to your school, which happens about a month before your scheduled program.

8. Why do you charge by the day?

The effort and expense required to bring a program to your school is based on the number of days we spend there. We love to work with your students and do not consider it an extra cost to see more of them in a day. By charging in the same way that our costs are incurred, we allow you to choose the schedule that works best for you based on your needs and the financial resources available to you.
