FAQs

1. What ages are your programs for?

We have programs for students between the ages of 10-18.

2. Can parents participate with their children in the program?

No, parents are not able to participate in our programs. While parents are some of our most incredible supporters, our programs are tailored to inspire and empower young creators. To this end we encourage our students to learn independently and collaboratively with their peers.

3. Do students need to have any previous experience before participating?

No previous experience or specific skill sets are required to participate in SV Robotics Academy’s programs. Our instructors adapt and tailor our curriculum to our students’ unique modes of learning.

4. Why should I try a class?

Our program is rewarding. It’s also difficult and rigorous. Trying a free class is a great chance for students to find out if SV Robotics is a good fit for them. There are no strings attached.

5. How small are the classes?

We have a small classroom setting with a 6:1 student/teacher ratio.

6. What do classes cost?

It depends on the program you’re enrolled in! Please refer to our pricing details to learn more (link to pricing). If you are interested in scholarships, please contact our team to find out how you can apply (link to contact). A one-time kit fee of $50 applies to all participants. This fee covers the costs of breadboard, wires, various sensors, actuators, microcontroller and various DC controllers.

7. Are scholarships available?

We offer a limited number of discounts, exclusively to families participating in our programs. Each subsequent family member may take 10% off our enrolment fees.

8. What types of payment are accepted?

Enrolment fees may be paid by cash, cheque or credit card on a monthly basis, on the 1st of each month. Students are eligible to join in the middle of the month and will be billed at a prorated rate accordingly.

9. Are any special supplies required?

We provide everything required to create an inspiring, empowering educational experience – from software to hardware. We just ask participants to bring a positive attitude as well as nut-free snacks and water.

10. What kind of safety measures are taken?

Adequate training will be provided to each participant to ensure that they have the knowledge to operate all machinery/tools safely. Use of any machinery/tools will be supervised by staff in accordance with SV Robotics Academy’s policy on assumption of risk by participants.

11. How do I enroll?

Enrollment is easy! If you’re signing up for the first time, you can try a free class here (link to free class sign-up). Or review our different options, and sign up here (link to pricing page). We recommend signing up as far in advance as possible as space is limited.

12. Can students make up classes they’ve missed?

If a student misses a session they may make that session up within 2 months. Missed sessions may be rescheduled up to two times in any given month (this is subject to class availability).

13. What is the refund and cancellation policy?

Once a student enrols in the program, they are obligated to pay for the duration of the month in which they submit a cancellation request. The only exceptions to this policy are extenuating circumstances (e.g. being ill, facing a circumstance beyond your control). We encourage all parents to submit inquiries regarding this, and any other, policy to [email protected]

14. What makes SV Robotics Academy unique?

We teach programming and engineering at a technical level while keeping it engaging for beginners. We do this through real-world applications, that incorporate business acumen. You won’t find Lego robotics and other toys in our classrooms. We play in modern prototyping labs with capabilities that include laser cutting/etching, 3D printing, CNC machining, electrical troubleshooting, dremmels and drill presses.
