Our Workshops are Curriculum Correlated

Mad Science curriculum workshops meet and go beyond provincial standard requirements. Our programs encourage an inquiry-based learning environment. Students will have the opportunity to learn through engaging demonstrations and hand-on activities. All students will make and take home an activity that relates to one of the topics discussed.

Happy Customers

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

This is the first time I have used Mad Science, and I will definitely be calling you again next year. Your hands-on experiments were very much like the ones I was planning on using - except way, way better! Thank you!

We always enjoy the presentations by the Mad Science people. They are targeted to the topic, have all the materials ready to go and the students are focused the entire time. It is a fun experience! Thank you!

Catherine was amazing. The students were very excited and very engaged - and they still talk about it (a week later!). Thank you!

FAQ

Do the students take something home from a workshop?

Yes! At least one take-home activity is part of every curriculum workshop. The activity is built during the workshop and relates to one of the topics of discussion. The students will also receive a journal that can be kept in class to supplement the workshop or taken home.
