I have worked with Mad Science several times in my career from preschool through elementary. Students are always excited to participate in workshops, as are staff! The consistency from scientist to scientist is very appealing to me as an educator. By 3rd grade students know the rules and expectations of Mad Science because the organization of the workshops is always the same. Students love trying out different experiments and using new materials and there is always a workshop that touches on the standards that we need to meet. Thank you for putting on fun, engaging, hands of programing!

I was blown away by how engaged my first graders were with the energy workshop! (No pun intended.) Lightning Lucy did an amazing job hooking the kids, introducing the new concepts, and assisting with the exploration while still letting the kids lead the way. She had great gentle control of the room and I was impressed with the new learning my students retained when she debriefed on the activity. The kids are still talking about how much they loved it!

Elaine was fabulous as always. She knows how to engage young children and her science expertise is evident. She also goes above and beyond to help teachers extend learning into the classrooms. I always look forward to this event. We've been fortunate to have Elaine teach many workshops, and she is by far the best.

Mad Science was at Woodland Elementary School to do the Green Energy Workshop. My third graders absolutely loved it. The concepts were presented in a way that had the students feeling like they were actually discovering the ideas on their own! They were engaged, working together to solve problems, and very enthusiastic about learning the material. There were two students who had issues and Lightning Lucy handled them beautifully by giving them helper jobs and taking a little extra time to let them have a turn. Lucy also used some very effective transition strategies to get the students to switch materials/activities very smoothly. This was extremely worthwhile and I hope they can come back. Thank you!

The activities presented were great hands on fun science activities. The kids loved the opportunity to work with manipulative that we just don't have available in a public school setting. I wish more time could have been available for actual "teaching" of the science behind the activities. When we "debriefed" about what they learned the next day, they were very enthusiastic about what they did, but couldn't really explain the "why" things worked. Like I said, the kids loved the activities, but as a teacher, I would like for them to understand more of the science behind it and not just have time to play. I definitely understand her time was limited by trying to get all the grades scheduled in throughout one day. The presenter did a great job keeping the kids entertained and bringing in science activities, this is just my perspective as a teacher.
