There is no cost for schools to attend; however, we do ask that the following facility requests are provided to ensure all activities are possible:

  • 10 full-sized lunch tables (One table will need access to electricity)
  • Access to a door that leads outside to well-lit flat spot (for firing rockets)
  • A 50'x10' open area inside the gym for the Segway scooter
  • Access to water (preferably warm), does not need to be running at the table.
