The conference is free for all students and accompanying teachers or chaperones. You may send as many students, faculty, and/or chaperones as you wish, but we ask for at least one adult chaperone to attend with a group of high school students. If many students from your school are attending, we recommend two or three chaperones (one per 25 attendees or so). We will upload a final schedule of activities soon.
