WORKSHOPS/CAMPS DISCLAIMER: Workshop fees vary depending on the cost of materials and/or transportation.
Workshop descriptions are written well in advance of the actual workshop dates. While the Science Center strives to follow
workshop descriptions listed in the brochure, there is the possibility that circumstances beyond our control might change
activities to some extent. For example, kits and supplies obtained for workshops might vary from the original description (the
suppliers sometimes make changes without informing us). Any such changes will not detract from the fun, hands-on and
creative classes that help our students discover the fun of science.

                                            The Science Center’s
                                         Student Conduct Guidelines
It is the intention of the Science Center to provide all students with a safe and secure environment. We
attempt to create a comfortable, fun atmosphere that will make the most of your child‟s Science Center

Please read these conduct guidelines carefully and make sure your child understands his/her
responsibilities and consequences relating to their behavior at the Science Center.

Student Conduct Responsibilities:
All students enrolled in camps or workshops at the Science Center must be able to demonstrate the
following with minimal direction and/or age-appropriate assistance:
    1. Maintain personal care.
    2. Respect others (listen, follow directions, use appropriate language, keep hands to self).
    3. Maintain self control.
    4. Stay with assigned group.

The consequences of inappropriate student conduct are as follows:
   1. At the first occurrence, the instructor will give a verbal warning to the student and will make a
       written record of the occurrence.
   2. At the second occurrence, the student will be counseled by the Director of Education, a parent will
       be contacted, and a written record of the occurrence will be made.
   3. At the third occurrence, the student will be removed from the classroom, a parent will be notified
       to have the student picked up immediately, and a written record of the occurrence will be made.
   4. There are certain behaviors that are considered severe enough to warrant immediate expulsion
       from the Science Center program or workshop, at the discretion of the Director of Education or
       Executive Director. These behaviors include, but are not limited to, physical aggression,
       possession of a weapon or illegal substance, stealing, jeopardizing the safety of another student
       or staff, repeated incidents of inappropriate language.

  Should a student be suspended or expelled for any reason, program fees are non-refundable.

                             Coming Soon - Cyber Security Training Program

Cyber security is perhaps the top national security imperative for the United States. No nation relies more on the
internet for its own defense. The key to our protection and well being lies in people, much more than firewalls or
software. We need more Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics educated U.S. citizens of all
disciplines, but we arguably require talent in cyber security most of all. Learn the fundamentals of computers,
operating systems, network interfaces, physical security, avenues of attack, and infrastructure security. Details
and schedule forthcoming of this jointly developed program with SPC.
