What is a Mad Science Camp?
Gallons of green glowing liquids; strange objects flying through the air; messages written in secret code; mystery substances that change from solid to liquid in seconds. Is this a fictional account of a visit to another planet? No . . . it's a Mad Science Winter Camp!
Yes, Mad Science, the world's leading provider of fun science programs is now offering winter science camps in Las Vegas. Now kids can enjoy week-long science camps, sparking their imaginative learning while school is out!

Since Mad Science came to the Valley over seven years ago, we have become a staple at dozens of elementary schools, recreation centers, parties, and community events throughout the area. We are proud to be the 2004-2005, 2005-2006 AND 2006-2007 recipient of the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce Award for "The Company That Best Exemplifies the Spirit of Las Vegas!
