Students have the opportunity to learn by asking questions, observing demonstrations, completing experiments, and building take-home projects. In addition, our programs have been correlated to match your curriculum requirements for every grade level.
Teachers do not always have the time and resources required to prepare interactive science programs. Mad Science’s experienced instructors come right into the teacher’s classroom with all the equipment, supplies, and staff. Our programs are fun, educational and focus on real world science and engineering practices that work to reinforce science concepts and methodologies.
Children will learn about science by touching, feeling, and even tasting their science experiments. We leave students inspired and hungry to learn more. We spark imaginative learning!
Wherever your kids are! We come to you, whether it's your classroom, your library, you child development center, a local park, or your home.
Nope! If your kids are around, so are we!
We need enough space for kids to work comfortably without being disturbed. Since many activities are done as small groups, tables or floor space tends to work better than desks. Depending on the topic being offered, we may also need access to water, electricity, or a room that can be darkened somewhat (to make some experiments even cooler!).
Our Mad Scientists recognize the great compliment it is to be specifically requested for a program. Unfortunately, due to the number of programs we typically run and the intricacies of program scheduling, travel, equipment distribution, and time off for our instructors, we cannot guarantee a specific Mad Scientist for a specific program. While we will make every reasonable effort to accommodate requests, we can only assure you that you will be satisfied with the excellent Mad Scientist that does your program, whomever it may be.
Similar to a request for a specific Mad Scientist, we cannot guarantee the gender of your Mad Scientist for all of the same reasons. We can assure you that you and the kids will be satisfied with any one of our excellent Mad Scientists.
We offer grade level aligned programs as well as the ability to design your own. If you have a certain topic you would like to cover but don't see, please contact us at (919) 858-8988 for availability.
