Mad Science will enhance your science curriculum with inquiry-based workshops that are aligned to STEM objectives and meet California Science Standards. Structured as an in-class field trip, Mad Science workshops are an exciting way to offer students a hands-on science experience without leaving the classroom. With professional lesson plans, unique equipment and experienced instructors, Mad Science workshops offer engaging learning experiences for students in grades K-6.
Each workshop is 60 minutes in length. Mad Science brings all of the equipment and materials to your location. We offer over 25 workshop topics that you may choose from in physical science, earth science or life science. Click here for a list of topics.
Each workshop comes with a Teacher Resource Package to help educators maximize the learning experience before and after each Mad Science workshop. This packet is sent to the teacher prior to the workshop.
Workshops can be stand-alone classes or combined into a reoccurring program during the school day. Many schools and organizations use our workshops to supplement their existing science program; others use our workshops as a reward for classes or groups of kids that participate in school programs.
We also offer the STAR Power Pack program which focuses on preparing 4th and 5th grade students for the STAR science test. Click here for more information.
