Mad Science is a leading science enrichment provider. We deliver unique, hands-on science experiences for children that are as entertaining as they are educational. We are a small, local business that is part of the world wide network of Mad Scientists! We provide science programs throughout the Central Florida area.
Our innovative programs help kids learn about science through our fun after-school programs, preschool programs, in-class workshops, camps, birthday parties and special events. Mad Science encourages scientific literacy in children in an age when science is as vital as reading, writing and arithmetic. Our approach to teaching science invites children to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) based careers.
After School Programs - Mad Science has created a vast library of unique after school programs. Our spectacular demonstrations, hands-on activities, and real world discussions make learning about science fun for kids! Our interactive, one-hour after school science programs include such topics as rocketry, magnets, polymers, and even the science of toys. In each class, children are encouraged to give science a try and build their very own model rockets, periscopes, Mad Science putty, and more. Children even get to take home their science experiment to show Mom and Dad!
Birthday Parties - A science themed birthday is a great party idea that is sure to entertain! Mad Science birthday parties offer children a chance to participate in cool science experiments with a certified Mad Scientist! Kids discover the fun side of science as they take part in spectacular science demonstrations including chemical magic, movie special effects, and amazing bubbling potions. We have a laboratory full of interactive demonstrations and activities for your child’s next birthday!
