Get ready for some sizzlin’ excitement! Join us for SAFE and scientific fun with fire and ice! In this show, children will explore the 3 states of matter and learn about the amazing properties of fire and combustion. Children will see how our special Mad Science paper can burn leaving no ash behind and their jaws will drop when they witness our “Swoosh, Whoosh, Aaaah” experiment. After some sizzling chemical reactions heat things up, we will cool off with spectacular demonstrations involving dry ice! We will explore the “Big Burp”, the “Sizzling Scissors” and the famous “Mad Science Shower”. Children always marvel at the “coolness” of this frozen gas. All Mad Science shows provide live, interactive and compelling educational experiences that make learning a blast!
This show is sure to make Isaac Newton proud! This is a forcibly fantastic show about Newton’s 3 laws of physics and other properties of the laws of motion and gravity! Come hang out with us as we exchange funny dialogue with a life size cutout of Newton and conduct a series of entertaining, large scale demonstrations about all sorts of forces including gravity, centrifugal force, inertia and much more. Rotational forces, a rocket pack blast off, electromagnetic propulsion, and our exclusive Newton's rocket car are just a few action packed experiments we will investigate. Just when you thought jet packs were something of the future, you’ll see us propel several members of the audience across the floor using our own, very special Mad Science rocket car! Come join us in our version of Mad Science Olympics. This engaging physics performance is sure to please everyone and inspire more imaginative learning in all of our audience members!
You think homework is pressure? Just wait until you learn how the weight of the earth’s atmosphere pushes down on you with the force of an elephant! Explore how Bernoulli’s principle creates enough lift to make a jumbo jet fly or how air pressure can be used to launch a hot air balloon. Watch in amazement as our vortex generator creates giant smoke rings. Want even more pressure? Take a ride on our amazing Mad Science Hovercraft! Mad Science shows are fun and educational and this program will leave you flying high! (Note: This performance works best on wood floors with high ceilings.)
Are you ready for some crazy chemistry? Explore the difference between physical and chemical change in our Radical Reactions show! Kids will marvel at our demonstrations as we release a genie from a bottle, spew massive columns of foam with the use of a catalyst, turn water into juice, cause combustion to occur with no flame needed, learn how to tell the difference between acids and bases in a colorful chemical experiment, and watch a gummy bear dive to its doom in an eruptive chemical reaction. Get ready to be amazed while you learn, because at Mad Science, all education is entertaining! (*Additional $50 charge for Radical Reactions)
Pitch, Frequency, Vibrations, Oh my! Meet our Mad Science Maestro in this ear pleasing show about the science of sounds! Open your ears and your eyes to be perplexed as you hear light, explore sound as it travels through solids, liquids, and gases, and listen to the beautiful tones of Mad Science resonance tubes. Take a trip through the jungle as we recreate the sounds of several animals. Find out how hot sound can be as it rises out of our Singing Pipe. After some thunderous applause, the Mad Science Conductor will need your help to recreate an indoor thunder storm. This Mad Science show is sure to please everyone and inspire more imaginative learning in all of our audience members!
Are you ready for some Super Science? We have our lab cape on and are ready to show off some super-cool super hero science! Outrunning bullet trains…super sped-up senses…robotic exoskeletons….tele-kinesis…we’ve got the coolest super powers covered. Join us in an action-packed event to figure out how these powers either use science or break the laws of science. Throughout the show we will experiment with some cool tools from our Mad Science utility belt, using parabolic ears and laser modulators to show that the human powers of perception are greatly expanded by science. Witness spontaneous combustion and watch us balance a unique amount of metal objects on our lab coats. Unravel the conundrum of “Super Speed”. Shoot a superhero out of a tube and witness what happens when the law of inertia is applied to this highly coveted super power! Learn the Super Strength of Non Newtonian Fluid, witness an unexpected object change color at random, and we will even use or telepathic powers to guess what you are thinking. And of course, no super hero is complete without the super power of Flight! We’ll demonstrate our own jet pack to jump start your daydreaming. (Disclaimer: we will not actually leave the ground with the jet pack). Behind every super power, there is SCIENCE! Join us this summer as we churn up some energy and forcibly expel fun at high velocities!
Prepare for science tricks & treats as we present our most famous elixirs. Reach into a magic bag…Boo! That’s okay, we promise it won’t bite. We'll show you how a spider dives to its doom and what can happen to a scientist if they do not follow proper safety rules. You will marvel at the Foaming Jack O’ Lantern we create as we listen for the wail of the banshee. Cauldrons of frothing witches brews, releasing ghosts from bottles, and warlock potions will complete your experience with the most "maddening" and scientifically spooky Halloween ever!
*This show is only available in October...but if you ask really nicely we might be willing to offer it off season.
It's the most wonderful time of the year and Mad Science is going to share it with you! You won't believe your eyes as you try to determine if what you're seeing is magic or science. Don't worry, we'll explain it all as we use our indoor fireworks to create a festival of lights and share our top secret "special ice", shipped straight from the North Pole. It all comes together with our magical no-melt snow. You'll have to see it to believe it!
*We try our best to make references to multicultural winter celebrations with our Holiday show. This show is typically offered in or around the December Holiday Season.
