Preschool Workshops

Our preschool workshops offer hands-on learning experiences for kids ages 4-5. 3 year olds may be accommodated with supervision. Each one is an age-appropriate exploration of a single science topic, like air, animals, weather, and worms. Kids enjoy engaging demos, perform simple experiments, and discover how science helps us understand our world.

Elementary-level Workshops

Our elementary-level in-class interactive workshops are aligned to STEM objectives and many are curriculum correlated for each grade level. With professional lesson plans, pre-and-post activity guides, and animated instructors, Mad Science workshops are an ideal way to reinforce core science concepts.

Happy Customers

Here's what teachers have to say about our workshops!

James visited our school today and the children absolutely loved his workshop on forces. He kept them entertained, highly amused and engaged for the whole hour. The workshop sparked lots of interest in my year six class and provoked lots of understanding and thinking. I would highly recommend Mad Science! Thanks very much!

FAQ

Does everyone always take something home from a workshop?

Yes! A take-home activity is part of every workshop program. Most of the time, the item is built during the workshop. In some workshops, the activity requires no assembly and will be given to the children at the end of the workshop.

+

How long in advance do I need to book?

We recommend 4-6 weeks before your event date. If you are going to be using our Teacher Resource Guide to complement the workshop, allow a little extra time to go over the pre-events with your class before the actual workshop.

+

For what ages are Mad Science workshops appropriate?

Our workshops are appropriate for children between ages 4-5 for preschool workshops and ages 5-12 for elementary-level workshops. 3yo's may be accommodated in preschool programs with appropriate supervision.

+

Are your workshops appropriate for other locations besides schools?

Yes! Summer camps, libraries, scout groups, community centers, family gatherings and corporate events book our workshops all the time! In the summer we even run a series that is correlated with the theme of each year's Library summer reading program.
