During this fun workshop Mad Science will safari Junior Explorers through the exotic, tropical world of jungle life. Children will be energized when we take a closer look at rain, light, insects and plants. Stinky bug juice and our pet “snake” will excite everyone. Children will make a Jungle Paw Print to bring home with them.     




Investigate the exciting world of polymers & the chemical reactions we use to create them. Transform two liquids into an oozing batch of your very own slime using the secret Mad Science recipe, and then enter your creation in the Slime Olympics!  



During this phenomenally fun workshop, Junior Astronomers will explore out-of-this-world comets, meteors and satellites. Children will be wowed when they vaporize space rocks and create moon craters. A fun game of satellite tag will explain lights in the night sky that don’t blink. Take Home: Superball comet.  




Science of Magic leaves children astounded, amazed, and educated! They learn how magicians use our assumptions and perceptions about how the world works to entertain us. Discovering how to make objects disappear and reappear using optical illusions, polymers, mirrors, as well as hidden compartments, sleight-of-hand, and misdirection are part of the learning experience. The art of escape with Houdini’s chains and the power of perception with the Cup Flip Trick are a few classics. The Mental Card Trick lets children bring home the magic to mystify their friends and family.




Children will step into the role of a detective and discover how forensic science plays a central role in solving crimes. They will create and analyze fingerprints, examine dental records, make teeth impressions and discover how written materials can be analyzed to help solve a crime. Their powers of observation will be put to the test. Everyone will make a Child Identification Kit to record their fingerprints and other vital information. 




In this fun & interactive workshop children will discover that their kitchen is actually a chemistry lab. We will take everyone on the hunt for starch, sugar and fats in foods as well as investigate a living organism that helps bread rise. Children will produce their own chemical reaction as they create Crazy Dough to take home. 



Albert Einstein said, “Imagination in more important than knowledge.” Throughout this workshop, children will be challenged to discover how seemingly impossible problems are solved.  Using our imaginations, we’ll discover answers to questions such as, Can a ball tell if you are a Mad Scientist? Can you blow up a balloon without using your mouth? Can you turn water into juice? Can you launch a teabag into space? Can you walk through paper? Can you make a coin vanish? And much more!





Children will be challenged to stop and consider air, its effects on our surroundings and its significance to life on earth. Everyone will enjoy a fascinating tale of our Viking ship. A stimulating series of hands-on activities will illustrate Bernoulli’s Principle and children will explore the phenomena of lift and drag. The Mad Science Vortex Generator and Water Rocket will provide great fun and a vivid demonstration of the power of air! Everyone will construct their own Bernoulli's Mist Maker to bring home with them.
