Experience Mad Science After School

Mad Science of Maine sparks imaginative learning for K-6th graders when school is out! Children experience first-hand what science is all about by getting hands-on with project-based activities, observing fascinating demonstrations, taking part in inquiry-based discussions, and by extending their learning at home with correlated take-home projects. Engaged, active, enthusiastic, and of course FUN learning is what we are all about! 

We have been offering our Enrichment Programs in Maine since 2001. We now serve over 50-60 communities in Maine & Southern New Hampshire every school year. We are excited to kick off another school year and get your child excited about science after school!

 After-School Enrichment Program Highlights: 
 Our hands-on courses meet once per week proceeding school dismissal. We offer three 8-week sessions every school year that run from October-June. Classes are themed around various STEM topics such as rocketry, robotics, engineering, geology, coding, chemistry, & more. Click here to read more about our topics. 
 

We utilize a dynamic mixture of a professionally developed curriculum, passionate and trained educators, inquiry driven educational techniques, and innovative science equipment. Our classes do not exceed 20 children, which maximizes the use of our materials and helps foster a more effective after school learning enviroment.

 

You will be ensured that your child is safe after school and continuing their learning in a fun way. Science responds to childrens need to learn about the world around them. We offer a meaningful, enriching context to introduce STEM concepts so your child can think critically about things in the world that spark their curiousity. Afterschool programming will help increase your childs academic achievement, which is one of the many benefits of our enrichment programs.

 

Whether your child is not interested in typical extra-curriculars or has a moderate interest in science, we believe your child will love our programs. The reason is quite simple; we make science fun! Kids who love Mad Science know that having fun is one of our 3 golden rules, right after safety of course. Science is fun because we inspire children to become agents of their experience. This helps support the principle that we follow, which is science is a way of thinking and thus requires "doing". 

We make enrichment easy! We have designed our programs to be safe and follow a hassle-free format. We have built partnerships with schools and community centers over the last 18 years. We work with our partners to set up a program that your child can go to in their school or community center after school dismissal. We handle all of the communication and logistics with our partners and work to bridge the gap between all of the parties involved to ensure a safe and smooth experience for your child.

We also try to make regitration easy. The best way to register is online and you can by check or credit card. Registration can also be taken over the phone at 207-878-2222 or by mail in registration formIn some locations, registration is taken by our partners.

After School Programs
Both my daughters love going to Mad Science after school on Mondays. It's my 8 year old's second year and she got my 5 year old interested with all the cool things she brought home last year (the robot was a huge hit!). They both love Atomic Amy and are always talking over each other about what they learned during the session. We are looking forward to the next session.

The program is a great addition to our early release Wednesdays. It is an hour of enrichment disguised as fun. My 8 year old loves the experiments in oceans to potions and can't wait to do his take home activity as soon as we get home. The conversations about what happened at mad Science continue through the week. My 5th grader is sad she is too old now maybe a program for older kids?

My daughter is a 3rd grader at Saco's Burns School. She's loving the Mad Science After-School program. And we both like the take-home activities. They're fun & they're great springboards for us to learn and talk with each other about science & the world. Sometimes our home experiments have gone great, other times they've been a bit disastrous! But they're always fun and help get the mind going.
