Current Events (Electricity) Science
In this electrifying class, students will be taken on a tour of the electron freeway. Problem-solving abilities, scientific know-how and good retention skills are explored when students tackle the problem of creating a circuit which will light a bulb. It's not as easy as it sounds! After mastering simple circuits, the class will turn to a hands-on exploration of more complex series circuits.
$201- $350
Under Pressure Science
Under Pressure teaches the basics of air pressure through demonstrations and activities of Bernoulli's Principle and Newton's Laws of Motion. Students will be challenged to stop and consider air, its effects on our surroundings and its significance to us and to life on Earth. The focus will then turn to air pressure beginning with a fun demonstration that illustrates the concept of unbalanced pressures.
$201- $350
Digging for Dinosaurs Science
GREAT TOPIC to COORDINATE WITH THE 2013 SUMMER READING TOPIC -- DIG INTO READING! We'll take you on a journey to a time when giant retiles ruled the earth. Children will examine real fossil casts and explore the differences in the teeth of herbivorous and carnivorous dinosaurs. Students will participate in a mini-dinosaur excavation and make a cast of a dinosaur tooth to take home.
$201- $350
~Mad Science Workshops~ Health & Fitness- Other,
Nature- Environment,
These programs are fun, hands-on science classes. Mad Science has over 100 workshop topics, each with its own take-home project - everything from Life Sciences and Physical Sciences to tobacco prevention workshops. All classes are taught by experienced instructors using professional materials and equipment. Class size is limited so that each child can have a truly hands-on experience. Most programs are for elementary school-age children, but special pre-school workshops are available. Check out the topics listed below or visit our website at:
$201- $350
Harnessing Heat Science
Students will be introduced to the concepts of heat and heat transfer. They will be treated to six interactive demonstrations and four entertaining and educational hands-on activities. The class will learn and observe the basic properties of heat by play-acting the role of atoms, as well as, observing the effects and behavior of warm air and water. The children will witness a tea bag rocket-launch, a gravity defying candle-lighting and even take part in a sense-confusing temperature test.
$201- $350
Bubbling Potions Science
Manipulate matter in all of its three states! Melt metal in boiling water and freeze water with just a breath of dry ice! These are but a few of the exciting experiments students will complete in this class. But the fun doesn't have to stop when the class ends! Children can continue experiments at home with their own Thermocolor cup(TM) - testing the temperatures of any liquid matter they choose!
$201- $350
The Science of Magic Science
How did they do that? It must have been magic! was the clever application of scientific knowledge! As an opener, students will be dazzled by magic with our disappearing rabbit... but is it really magic? We'll challenge them to employ their mind, body and all five senses to determine the explanation of our tricks! During this class they will see and try some of the most classic magic tricks - the Illusion Box,various handkerchief tricks and some newer tricks like Hydrophobic Experience.
$201- $350
Up, Up & Away Science
under construction
$201- $350
Optical Illusions Science
Students will be exposed to a wide variety of optical illusions like the camera obscura, the mirror mirage and various other classic illusions. The concepts of refraction, the science of optics and the biology associated with sight will be covered. Periscopes will be introduced and after an instructional demonstration on the science and design behind the periscope, the children will construct their own to take home.
$201- $350
Matter of Fact Science
Through a hands on approach, we introduce children to the structure of atoms and molecules. They will learn how atoms combine to create molecules, examine molecules and molecular bonding. They will learn and observe the difference between physical and chemical changes. As the final experiment in chemical changes, students will have the chance to create their own Mad Science Putty. This lesson provides children the opportunity to develop scientific skills through inquiry based instructional methods.
$201- $350
