Our After-School Program Themes
Using LEGO® bricks, kids build a different engineering-themed project in each class. They explore different engineering fields including mechanical, structural, aerospace, nautical, and bioengineering. They use critical thinking and creative problem-solving to test and improve their creations.
Hop on board the Mad Science express for a high-speed, hands-on science experience guaranteed to energize your mind! Explore the many facets of energy, forces, motion, potions, and yes…slime! Reach for your potential…and kinetic energy as you experiment with gadgets, cars, and catapults. Discover how to make objects disappear and reappear as we unravel mysteries of magic using science.
Secret Agent Lab
Look out 007! Secret Agent Lab is in session. Students learn about forensics, evidence gathering and analysis, while building their skills of recall and observation. Your little gumshoe will develop the tools of the trade as they sniff out forgeries and counterfeit. This is the perfect class for students who are seeking to learn firsthand how investigative science relates to their world.
Robotics has never been this exciting! The applications of robotics is all around us and we invite girls and boys to discover first-hand the design, construction, and application of modern-day robotics. Through the integration of exciting modular robotics learning systems and various types of robots children will discover how robotic devices use sensors to learn about their environment.
Have you ever seen your child show an excessive enthusiasm for science or as we call it, “Mad Science Maine-ia”!? We invite you to blast off into the 21st century with Mad Science as we open your child up to a world where they will explore the many exciting aspects of Engineering. Build model bridges, explore circuits, learn how airplanes defy gravity, and get hands-on with rocket propulsion.
Marvels of Science
Have you ever wondered what clouds are made of, what goes on underneath the surface of the earth or how toys work? Join Mad Science after school to discover these countless wonders of science! Neither rain, nor snow will disrupt our hands-on exploration into the world of meteorology and voyages to the center of the Earth! We'll investigate sound waves, suit up for a flight into space.
Our mission is to empower girls and boys all around the world with basic computational thinking skills and knowledge of computer programming concepts in a fun, accessible way. In a world that is increasingly influenced by technology, we believe that it's essential for children to get familiar with 21st century skills and the understanding of how we, as humans, program machines.
