What if my kid has already done the skyrock summer camp?
(online or in-person)

All Grade 1 students will take our flagship Young Inventors program. This will be all new curriculum for Grade 1 students (unless they took the STEAM Box course in Summer).

All Grade 2, 3 and 4 students will join the Mars Survival Guide and Ocean Task Force program.
If they attended the online summer camp or in person summer camp and they have already completed this curriculum, we can offer custom classes in other courses.

How many students in a class?

There will be a maximum of 8 students in each class.

What is the minimum number of students to open a class?

The minimum number of students to open a class is 5. In the event a class does not reach 5 students we will do our best to accommodate those students at another time, or help them to form a custom class with other students where possible.

If we cannot attend a class will there be a make-up available?

Make-up classes are not available, but we will provide the classroom material and online resources to the student so they can complete the material independently at home, and this can be reviewed by the teacher at the next lesson.

In the event that the Covid situation was to worsen and classes be cancelled, what would happen to my deposit?

We have spent a large part of the last 6 months developing a high-quality online curriculum for each of our programs which still incorporates the hands-on material element of the program. In the event the covid-19 situation was to worsen, and we are advised by the Ministry of Education to close our classes, we will offer all of our weekly programs online and send all the required materials home to the students.

Will the teacher be the same for the whole semester or will it change theme by theme?

Teachers will remain the same for the duration of the semester except for in special circumstances (absence due to illness etc). Any changes to teachers will be clearly communicated to the parents in advance.

Can I have a discount if I purchase more semesters or camp classes up front?

No. We are only accepting bookings for individual programs and semesters at this time.

Will there be an incentive to sign up siblings?

Yes, we will offer each sibling NT$1,500 in Skyrock credit which they can use against a future camp or Skyrock class.

Is the STEAM Fundamentals program the same as the Young Inventors Club curriculum last year or is this a new course?

Many of the projects are similar to the YIC program but we have added new elements such as project remixes and new classroom activities. If you child already took the YIC curriculum last year, we will move them to the more advanced level, so they are completing new curriculum.

What will the themes for Nano (STEAM Beginners) be?

The themes for STEAM Beginners will be Space, Earth, and Ocean with students taking 6 weeks of each theme throughout the semester.

Will there be classes available for students in Grades 5 – 9?
