This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.

Amaze your student with a Mad Science after-school program. Our interactive programs cover science topics in a hands-on way, that is sure to get every child's attention, and help them grasp foundational scientific concepts without them even knowing that they are learning.  

Calling all innovators…! Come blast off into the 21st century as we inspire your inner innovator! Embark upon a quest for alternative energy and experiment with solar power and fuel cells. Explore the planet’s atmosphere and make a meteorological station. Learn about robots as you laugh hysterically at an animated automaton. Hop on board the chemistry express and perform split-second chemical reactions that go like mad. Get charged up about current electricity by building circuits. Conduct hair raising experiments and watch flying saucers skyrocket from our Van De Graff Generator! Wire your brain by creating a real telephone network to talk to your classmates. Experiment with lasers, learn the principles of radar technology, and so much more!

Marvels of Science
How does sound travel? What are clouds made of? How old would you be if you lived on Saturn? Join Mad Science after school and explore these countless wonders of science! Go on an explorative journey into the depths of the sea to see what life beyond the waves has to offer. Then voyage to the center of the Earth as you investigate earthquakes. Blend some mixtures of your own and then use various tools to separate them. Examine sound waves by changing the pitch of your voice. Even take a spacewalk mission that simulates a solar panel repair on the International Space Station! Investigate 3-D technology and use an animation machine that turns still images into a moving picture. Albert Einstein said: “The process of scientific discovery is, in effect, a continual flight from wonder.” Come take a hands-on flight with your imagination into the many marvels of science!
