Our After-School Program Themes: 2019-2020
NASA Academy of Future Space Explorers
NASA and Mad Science collaborate to educate the next generation! Children go on a voyage of discovery with unique hands-on activities, and amazing demonstrations that explore the sun and stars, space technology, rocket science, the atmosphere, planets and moons, and more!
Using LEGO® bricks, kids build a different engineering-themed project in each class. They explore different engineering fields including mechanical, structural, aerospace, nautical, and bioengineering. They use critical thinking and creative problem-solving to test and improve their creations.
Our mission is to empower girls and boys all around the world with basic computational thinking skills and knowledge of computer programming concepts in a fun, accessible way. Develop computational thinking and problem solving skills in the online game where you program a robot to solve challenges!
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. Children will learn about science by touching, feeling, and even tasting their science experiments. We leave children inspired!
Here's what parents have to say about our after-school programs!
My son has attended the Mad Science after-school programs every year starting from Kindergarten! We love how excited he has been after each class to tell us about the cool things his Mad Scientist did! We can't wait to do it again this year!
When I pick up my son from school on Fridays, his energy is different from any other day. Instead of the usual response to my questioning of his day's experience - "it was fine"- I hear an enthusiastic stream of science facts and stories of experiments. When we get home, he demonstrates what he's done with the kits Mad Science gives him to take home. Thank You Mad Science!!
