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.
Welcome to the world of chemistry! Children make slime, experiment with different reactions, and learn to use the tools that chemists use. Polymers and catalysts are only two of the fascinating concepts our young Mad Scientists explore in this thrilling trip through the chemistry lab!
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.
How long are your programs (weeks and hours)?
Our standard program is held immediately after school for 1 hour and typically lasts for 4 or 8 weeks. However, Mad Science can accommodate program requests of 4 to 12 weeks. We will be happy to discuss any atypical scheduling needs.+
Who pays for an after-school program?
Typically, after-school programs are paid for by parents. In some cases, a PTO or other organization may opt to pay part or all of the students' enrollment.+
Here's what schools have to say about our after-school programs!
My Granddaughter loves going to mad science. She looks forward to it every single week.
Thanks for all your work of enriching our schools and providing science enrichment!
Both of my kids have participated in several sessions of the after school program at their school. They have enjoyed all the activities and always come home with some new knowledge to share at the dinner table. My daughter enjoyed it so much that she chose to have her birthday party at the Mad Science building. It was a super easy birthday party. All I did was bring the cake she wanted - they
