We appreciate your patience as we try to identify a possible new date in June. Registration dates will be open again once we have a new date in place.

This registration link is for schools and other organizations who wish to purchase a block of seats. Schools and other organizations may register minimum 7 - 20 maximum students within a group. This form collects information about your school or organization and primary contact information. Once you have completed the registration form for your group you will receive an automated confirmation from FamilyID and an email from Rachel Arno of Jr.Tech. This email will provide an online registration link that will ask for individual student information, signed waiver information, and a deadline to obtain information.
Past experience has shown us it is difficult for groups to fill more than 20 seats. However, if your school or organization is interested in a larger group please contact Rachel Arno at email@example.com to consider this option.
Jr. Tech is happy to provide an invoice for groups requiring a purchase order (PO) to process payment. However, please note that 100% payment is required within 2 weeks of registration, even if a PO is provided. We ask that the group contact notify the business office about the payment timeline. Alternately, a school representative may opt to make the payment directly with a credit card and request reimbursement from the school department.
- Up to 2 chaperones may attend the workshops at no cost.
- Food is provided to students as part of their registration fee. Chaperones who wish to participate in the food offerings for the day (continental breakfast and lunch) can enjoy these refreshments for $18 for the day, payable at the time of registration. Alternately, chaperones are welcome to bring snacks, drinks, and lunch from home. Please indicate your selection on the registration form.
