Engineering for Kids Cancellation and Refund Policy

Effective: 2/8/2024 (for any registrations from 12am on 2/8/2024 and onwards)


Engineering For Kids (EFK) offers opportunities for the youth to get excited about STEM
through fun, engaging and hands-on programs. A quality program requires detailed planning,
teacher hiring and training, supply preparing, and administrative support so that your child will
have high quality experience.
We understand that things happen and plans sometimes cannot be met. We try our best to
accommodate your change of needs. As a significant amount of the cost is invested long before a
program starts, refunds and credits vary based on the amount of advanced notice you are able to
provide.
