Behaviour & Safety Policies
STEM Minds strives to provide the highest level of safety and enjoyment to all participants and staff during its programming. We have developed these policies to support this mission.
1. Coarse language, bullying, non-compliance, aggressive or inappropriate behaviour, and behaviour that significantly impacts the safety or enjoyment of staff or other participants are not permitted.
2. Representatives of the organization are responsible for notifying STEM Minds staff of any students who have physical, intellectual, or learning disabilities that need to be accommodated or of any behavioural challenges of students so that appropriate accommodations can be made.
3. No work created by participants should feature violent or otherwise inappropriate themes.
Our staff will make every effort to accommodate student’s needs and integrate them into programming. In the event of disciplinary action being required, STEM Minds staff will relay concerns to representatives of the organization, who are then responsible for addressing the concerns with the student. We reserve the right to request the immediate removal of students from programming should their behaviour cause harm to themselves, other participants, staff, or property.
Safe & Responsible Technology Use
All technological equipment required to participate in STEM Minds programming will be provided by STEM Minds. In the event that a participant does bring a personal technological device, STEM Minds, its staff, and its vendors are not liable for any loss, theft, or damage that may occur.
It is expected that technology and technology services supplied by STEM Minds will be used in an appropriate, responsible and safe manner. This includes, but is not limited to, all technology provided by STEM Minds and personal technologies connecting to STEM Minds network and accessing STEM Minds technology services. Use of personal devices on networks other than the STEM Minds network when used in STEM Minds learning and program environments are also subject to these policies and procedures.
All participants in STEM Minds programming who are given access to STEM Minds technology and technology services are required to know and abide by the Safe & Responsible Technology Use Policy.
