Mad Science events and workshops are great for use as an in class field trip, are a wonderful addition to any teacher's lesson plans, and a fun activity for day care centers, church groups, and other gatherings!
Did you know that of the vast amount of water on our planet, only 1% is fresh and drinkable? Did you know that a silent toilet leak can waste up to 7,000 gallons of water per month? Come and shake it up with the Mad Scientist as you learn all about the amazing attributes of water while focusing on the importance of conserving this precious resource!
You think homework is pressure? Just wait until you learn how the weight of the earth’s atmosphere pushes down on you with the force of two elephants! Explore how Bernoulli’s principle creates enough lift to make a jumbo jet fly or how air pressure can be used to launch a hot air balloon. Watch in amazement as our vortex generator creates giant smoke rings. Want even more pressure? Take a ride on our amazing Mad Science Hovercraft! Mad Science shows are fun and educational and this program will leave you flying high! This spellbinding special event introduces children to the principles of air and pressure. Hot air balloons, vortex generators and even a hovercraft will help children understand the power of air.
Assemblies are $350 or $275 each for multiple, consecutive shows.

Learn about the effect you have on the environment around you. How long do things take to decompose? What happens to our lakes when we pollute? How can we improve our environment? Get the answers to these questions and more!
Children get weather-wise in this climate-controlled class! A demonstration using heat sensitive paper and a flashlight brings to light the reasons for seasons. Children discover how air affects weather, and perform a test to prove that air is everywhere. Children try out tools that meteorologists use to measure weather. They create three-day weather forecasts for cities around the world and stage a statically charged indoor storm. Children take home the color-changing Sun Beads kit to detect ultraviolet light from the sun.
Children dig-in to Earth science! Earth’s layers are introduced with a spotlight on its outer rocky layer. Children check out three rock samples to find out how they were made and where they were formed. They inspect minerals with an ultraviolet light to see them fluoresce. They model the moving plates that cause bends and breaks in the Earth’s solid rock layer. Tremors are created to tip a tower, and then things get rocky with the Experitube Take-Home. Children can make it and shake it to see sediment settle into layers!
Mad Science in class field trips are $159 and include one take home item for up to 20 kids.

In this workshop, preschoolers will get to see how recycling affects our community and the animals around us. They will also learn how easy it is to sort our recyclable materials!
Children will explore the science of the sea when they learn about what sand is made from, how shells are used by animals for protection and what animals live in the ocean. They will make their own ocean bottle to take home.
Through this interactive class preschoolers will help create a cloud in a bottle and will make in rain inside. They will also learn all about the water cycle and will create their own snow to take home.
Preschool In Class field trips are $99 and include take home items for up to 16 kids.
