Mad Science provides students with fun, interactive and educational activities that instill a clearer understanding of science and how it affects the world around us. With over 25 years experience providing fun, hands-on science programs in after-school settings, Mad Science delivers kid tested programs and makes the implementation process easy on school staff and parents. The lasting relationships we build result from meeting our partner schools needs along with our support of the larger school community.
Mad Science always delivers a unique curriculum developed by dedicated science educators. Our fun, inquiry-based approach includes a blend of demonstrations and hands-on activities in every session. Certified instructors arrive in lab coats 10 minutes before class with all the equipment and materials required. You can be confident in knowing that every Mad Scientist is thoroughly trained and will provide a safe, fun, and educational experience for all students in their care. And, all of our topics are correlated with the North Carolina Essential Standards (NCES).
Students make and take home a science project related to the topic each week. Mad Science provides a summary of each class that describes what was done and lists additional activities that parents may use to continue the fun and learning.
Schedule our free, high-energy, half hour performance to excite your entire student body about science and inform them of what to expect if they participate in the program. Multiple assemblies may be arranged to allow for age appropriate presentations and large student populations. The Mad Science assembly is correlated with SCS standards and we can supply teachers with pre and post learning materials to extend the learning and fun.
Customized registration forms are provided to announce your program. We produce and deliver the documents to your school bundled for each teacher’s classroom. Full color posters are also available.
Mad Science can register students and collect funds with our fast, on-line process. Registration by phone and mail are accepted alternatives.
Mad Science will confirm participants, create class rosters and keep everyone informed. If your organization decides to process the registrations and payments, we will provide you with the blank documents to track the information.
Mad Science offers a free in class field trip to the teacher who lets us borrow their classroom as a big thank you to the teacher AND the students! Our instructors know how important it is that a teacher's room stays organized, and we want to say THANKS!
Mad Science will donate a spot in the club to the PTA, available to be auctioned off for funds, for use as a reward, or any other way the PTA chooses to use it! We will also come visit your Fall Festival, Spring Carnival, or other event with a 2 hour Discovery Station ($358 value)!
Invite a Mad Scientist (looking very official in their lab coat) to your science fair where they can help judge the entries, award prizes and participate in other activities. They may also surprise the kids with a fun demonstration or two!
