Policy / The Fine Print

Payment Deadline

All payments must be received in full one week prior to the workshop.

Withdrawal Policy

If you notify KISS Institute that you wish to withdraw from the program at least two weeks in advance of the workshop, your team is relieved of all financial obligation. Teams who have already paid will be refunded in full.

If you notify KISS Institute that you wish to withdraw from the program within the two weeks prior to the workshop or after the workshop date, your team will be subject to a late withdrawal fee of 10% of the registration fee to cover the cost of shipping and restocking your team's equipment.

If you notify KISS Institute that you wish to withdraw from the program after attending the workshop, your team is responsible for the entire registration fee.


Photos will be taken during the workshop, tournament, and Global Conference on Educational Robotics. KISS Institute for Practical Robotics reserves the right to use any photograph taken during a Botball event, without the express written permission of those included within the photograph. Photographs may be used in publications or other media material produced, used, or contracted by KISS Institute. Any person desiring not to have their photo taken or distributed must contact KISS Institute's Public Outreach Coordinator in writing stating their preference and include a photograph. The photo will be used for identification purposes and will be held in confidentiality by the Public Outreach Coordinator.


Replacement: Teams have the opportunity to replace broken or damaged kit parts during the Teacher Workshop at no charge. After kits are checked out from the workshop, teams may purchase electronic parts from the Botball Store.

Kit Shipment: Should a returning team elect not to attend the workshop, KISS Institute will ship the kit to your school after the workshop. Full registration payment and shipping fees must be received prior to shipment.
