Mad Science was at Woodland Elementary School to do the Green Energy Workshop. My third graders absolutely loved it. The concepts were presented in a way that had the students feeling like they were actually discovering the ideas on their own! They were engaged, working together to solve problems, and very enthusiastic about learning the material. There were two students who had issues and Lightning Lucy handled them beautifully by giving them helper jobs and taking a little extra time to let them have a turn. Lucy also used some very effective transition strategies to get the students to switch materials/activities very smoothly. This was extremely worthwhile and I hope they can come back. Thank you!

The activities presented were great hands on fun science activities. The kids loved the opportunity to work with manipulative that we just don't have available in a public school setting. I wish more time could have been available for actual "teaching" of the science behind the activities. When we "debriefed" about what they learned the next day, they were very enthusiastic about what they did, but couldn't really explain the "why" things worked. Like I said, the kids loved the activities, but as a teacher, I would like for them to understand more of the science behind it and not just have time to play. I definitely understand her time was limited by trying to get all the grades scheduled in throughout one day. The presenter did a great job keeping the kids entertained and bringing in science activities, this is just my perspective as a teacher.


After School Programs
We had a Mad Science party for my son's 7th birthday in the comfort of our home. We chose to add the dry ice package. If I could give 10 stars I would! From set up, bringing science down to an elementary level to engagement of the children- and adults! What an amazing, electrifying show, and Kit absolutely rocks!!


Special Events
Mad Science presented their Holiday Spectacular Show at the South Portland Public Library last weekend and it was indeed spectacular! Lightning Lucy kept the kids, and adults, fully entertained and engaged throughout the entire program. It was great to see the kids having so much fun while learning all about science!


MAD Science of Maine came yesterday to Benton Elementary for a Sonic Sound Workshop. This workshop was designed to teach 1st graders all about sound, and it definitely did that! Electric Elaine (The Mad Scientist) was full of energy and ready to teach students using a variety of hands of materials that students were able to experiment with. They were able to conduct investigations and provide evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can make materials vibrate. And at the end of the workshop Electric Elaine gave each 1st grader a Sonic Horn to take home. Students left the workshop eager to share with their families all that they learned about Sonic Sound! Thank you Electric Elaine and MAD Science of Maine for this incredible workshop that aligns perfectly with the Next Generation Science Standards!
