1, Mad Science Rocket Demo Science
The students will be introduced to the basic parts that make up every rocket. The discussion lays the foundation for the 3 parts of flight and the fundamental principles of rocket flight. To both illustrate and entertain, the children will be involved in a fun balloon-rocket race. With the science behind rockets covered, students will witness the preparation of a rocket for flight and will learn basic pre-launch safety procedures. They will then be brought outside to witness the grand finale - the launch of a model rocket from a launch-pad!

Mad Science, Mad Science of Long Island Listen Closely (Preschool Workshop) Other,
**Listen Closely** This workshop will introduce students to the science behind the sounds all around them. Children will experiment with a wave motion model and a twirling tube to help them understand that sound travels in waves and can be heard in a variety pitches. They will also have the opportunity to learn about the everyday materials that make a variety of special effects noises in the movies and will watch, and hear, a bee buzz above their heads. These are programs specifically designed for children ages 3 and 4, and take place at your location. Our only requirements are: a room that can be darkened if needed, with tables and chairs where the children can work comfortably; a small table to set up our equipment and access to water and electricity. The children perform experiments, participate in demonstrations and, for most workshops, there is a take home item for each child at the end of the program.
