Course Descriptions

NASA

Mad Science and NASA have joined forces to bring the wonderful world of space to our extracurricular activities in our Academy of Future Space Explorers program! During the sessions, children will have the chance to live an extraordinary journey through the solar system exploring planets, stars and the asteroid belt. With unique activities, fun and educational demonstrations, this program is out of this world!

Crazy Chemworks

Fun, educational, and hands-on workshops where Junior Scientists will discover tricks and techniques of a wacky Mad Science Laboratory. They will become experts in sticky chemistry and in the different states of matter. Several projects to take home will allow your Junior Scientist to continue the experiences at home! Don’t miss this opportunity to jump on board this great science excursion!

Mad About Senses

Mad Science invites you to live incredible experiments! You will have the chance to discover the strengths and weaknesses of your senses and even play tricks on them. Learn how objects react to heat, test your sense of smell and even become Darth Vader in a class!

Junior Engineers

How do we perceive the world around us? Our junior engineers will dabble in kitchen chemistry and the mystery of weather. Children will learn the science behind movies, toys and machines. Are they curious? Let’s see what happens when they play the role of detective!

Mad Lab

Come with us on a trip across the world of science! We will explore the marvels of aerodynamics and flight. You will build your own Skyhawk. Experiment with cool chemical reactions and take them home. You will learn the scientific basis to some of your favorite magic tricks and witness a ping-pong ball float before your eyes.

Brixology

Can you imagine yourself as a master builder? Take on various projects using LEGO ® bricks. The key is understanding the science behind the constructions and accomplishing the step by step processes!
