Mad Science In-Class Workshops offer hands-on activities, inquiry-based learning methodology, standards-based pre and post assessment tools, teacher resource packages and take home cards with at-home family science experiments. Students will have the opportunity to learn by asking questions, observing demonstrations, completing experiments, and engage in exciting group projects. We provide all class materials and each student receives a take-home project that relates directly to each topic. Our programs have been correlated to match curriculum requirements for every grade level and are rich in elementary level science content.
These diversely themed, 60-90 minute inquiry-based programs can be used as a curriculum enhancement or as an introduction to science concepts not yet covered. We offer a hassle-free and convenient way for students to experience exciting, hands-on science!
How do children learn best? Most educators agree that through experiential learning, subjects (especially complex or difficult ones) are driven home for students. What’s more, when students have an opportunity to experience science, it sparks their imagination and instills an appreciation and even a passion for the subject. Plus, they have a lot of fun doing it!
Teachers do not always have the time and resources required to prepare interactive science programs. Mad Science experienced instructors come right into the teacher’s classroom with all the equipment, supplies, and knowledge to facilitate a quality program.
Teacher Resource Packets are offered with each class. These Packets include with crosscutting concepts to help you integrate the content covered by the workshop. It provides you with activities to do before and after the workshop.
