CREDITS, REFUNDS, TRANSFERS
Is the workshop or reservation fee refundable?
It depends, please be sure you are able to attend the workshop prior to registering for it.
If you for some reason can no longer attend and let the Registrar know as soon as possible ([email protected]).
For School Year workshops: Refunds for the balance of the full workshop fee (that is, the full fee minus the reservation fee) must be requested one week or more before the workshop. If the request is made the week prior, you can get credit for a future workshop.
For Summer STEM Institute workshops: Refunds for the balance of the full workshop fee (that is, the full fee minus the reservation fee) must be requested within one (1) week of payment and at least four (4) weeks before the start of the workshop. All such requests must be accompanied by an acceptable, documented explanation. Judgments about acceptability of explanations and documentation, and about whether or not a refund will be issued are at the sole discretion of STEMteachersNYC and are final. Refunds will not include fees charged on the initial payment by Eventbrite, credit cards, and/or banks.
If your school or organization has made the ticket purchase for you, your credit may be transferable to a school or organization colleague.
Is my reservation/ticket transferrable?
Possibly, please contact STEMteachersNYC Registrar ([email protected]) if you need to transfer your reservation to a different person/name, or if you wish to transfer your reservation to a different workshop.
The name on the reservation/ticket doesn’t match the attendee. Is that okay?
No, please contact STEMteachersNYC Registrar ([email protected]) to address this and update your reservation information.
Photographs, Screenshots and Video Recordings
We take photographs and record our workshops in order to support new workshop leaders and to publicize a positive image of science teaching, and of STEMteachersNYC – a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. If you register, you are agreeing to be photographed and to have your voice and image recorded. You are also agreeing to relinquish all your rights to the photographs and recordings.
If you do not wish to be photographed or recorded, you must inform us when you check in at the beginning of the workshop, or turn off your camera during a virtual workshop. We will take one photograph of your face so that we can erase your image if we happen to catch it by chance during the workshop, and we will do our best to avoid you. We would also appreciate your cooperation in positioning yourself at the edge of the group (for in person workshops) so as to help us avoid you.
What if it’s snowing or icy out?
In cases of inclement weather, STEMteachersNYC will notify participants if that partner location has indicated school closings or a severe weather advisory. We will contact registered participants in advance if a workshop will need to be rescheduled – or if it has been moved to Zoom. If you do not hear from us, this means the workshop will proceed as planned.
If STEMteachersNYC cancels an in-person or virtual ticketed workshop or event, you will be refunded the full price of the ticket.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Questions about registration for a workshop should be addressed to STEMteachersNYC Registrar ([email protected]).
