Benefits of Summer Performances for Libraries 

There are many benefits to partnering with Mad Science. Our programs are designed to spark the imagination of all students, not just those that have a general interest in science. The reason why we reach a broad scope of children is quite simple, we make learning FUN! With our interactive reading shows, we encourage young minds to mine the library this summer to read books that will keep them digging for more knowledge. And of course, we turn kids on to science. Science not only increases language and literacy, but it also responds to childrens’ need to learn about the world around them. Mad Science offers new ways of considering familiar objects and events and provides a meaningful context to introduce new vocabulary and science concepts to children. Moreover, we are complementary partners in the STEM education effort and offer many programs to excite youth about STEM topics and careers.

Special Events
We booked the Spooky Science party for our track-out camp and they had a BLAST! They were so entertained and there were lots of "This guy is awesome!"s being heard around the classroom. They especially loved the bubble trick and making slime at the end! Thanks for a great experience and a special thanks to Doc Roc for being so patient! It was a very odd day as WCPSS was closed because of the hurricane and our center was closing at noon - so some parents were trying to pick up during his presentation and we were trying to get lunch ready as well. He was so calm and understanding during the zoo! Thanks again for a great time!

Special Events
We had an event with more than 150 kids and they LOVED the Mad Science station. Our Mad Scientist arrived right on time, set up quickly and handled the cafeteria full of kids beautifully. The kids had a lot of fun and the hands on activity was very engaging and informative. We would highly recommend Mad Science and look forward to working with them in future years.
