STEM In-Class Workshops

 

Mad Science In-Class Workshops are designed by a professional team of educators and scientist. They will meet your curriculum requirements and STEM objectives. Continue reading to learn how Mad Science can help you blast off into the next century of science education.


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.

 Sample Teachers Resource Packets:

Science Pre & Post

Technology Pre & Post

Engineering Pre & Post

Our programs are fun, educational and focus on real world science and engineering practices that work to reinforce science concepts and methodologies.


 

Children will learn about science by touching, feeling, and even tasting their science experiments. We leave students inspired and hungry to learn more.

 

 

 

We bring science alive! We will provide your pupils with the opportunity to participate in a unique, entertaining, and educational experience. Your class will be led by your very own in-class Mad Scientist and your children will explore a topic with a mixture of interactive discussions, demonstrations, and hands-on experiments.

We had Mad Science present 'Fundamentals of Force at our public Library during February school vacation. The children had an great time rotating through the science stations. The scientist who led the program was knowledgeable and worked well with the children. I was very impressed and have plans to invite them back for a future program. Fun was had by all : )

This was my first Mad Science workshop, and over the course of the day I found myself continuously impressed with Electric Elaine! Electric Elaine set clear expectations and provided many fabulous hands on experiences that fully engaged a wide variety of learners. Every student was excited, participated, and had lots of fun! Thank you Electric Elaine!

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!
