Exploration Program

Thank you for inquiring about our Amazing Mad Science "EXPLORATION" Program! 

Discover what over 75 CCSD schools have experienced! Our amazing “Exploration Program” was designed in conjunction with a principal at a local elementary school in order to bring the Mad Science experience to the entire student body. This program provides every child with hands-on, inquiry-based science activities to spark their imagination and curiosity.  **You and your staff do not have to do a thing!!**

The following fantastic hands-on science booths are examples of what could be provided at your event. Each activity provides children with fun science experiments that they can do themselves. Many include items to make and take home with them! The same activities will be done with all grade levels, however the scientific explanations will change, depending on the ages of the children

Vortex Generators - Make your own Vortex Generator to create air pockets with a punch!  (Scientific Principles: Air Pressure)

Green HousesConduct your own experiment using the scientific method.  As our Mad Scientists explain how plants and people rely on each other for their survival, the children will be guided to setup their own seed germination experiment.  (Scientific Principles: Scientific Method, Science as Inquiry, Seed Germination)

Electricity - Discover how lightning is formed and why static electricity likes it cool and dry. Get your hands on our Van de Graff generator – it’s a hair-raising experience! (Scientific Principles: Electron Theory, Conductivity, Friction, Electricity)

Snow! - It’s winter all year long!  Learn the secrets of how our special polymer becomes Mad Science snow!  Students will also get to make and take home snow that never melts!  (Scientific Principles: Polymers, Osmosis, Absorption) 

Lights, Color, Action! - Uncover the hidden components in ordinary light with our Mad Science diffraction glasses!  Students will get to experience the science behind the many facets of color and lights! (Scientific Principles: Illumination, Spectrum)

Bubbling Potions - A dry ice extravaganza! Witness a coin shivering from the cold, play with our unique Mad Science Shower, and create the same awesome smoke illusions used in the movies! (Scientific Principles: States of Matter, Sublimation, Physical Reactions)

Your Mad Science “EXPLORATION PROGRAM” includes the following:

  • One or two days of exciting, hands-on activities.
  • Six educational booths for children to explore, including three "Make & Take" activities.
  • Age-appropriate one-hour sessions.
  • An overview at the beginning of each session, explaining the activities and scientific concepts students will be exploring.
  • A review at the conclusion of each session.
  • “Exploration Quiz” for students with prizes.
  • Science Writing Prompts for each teacher to use in class.
  • Cross curricular "Teacher Resource Guides" for each station (classroom EXTENSION ELEMENT). 
  • Photographs of your students’ experience provided on a CD.
  • Framed collage of photos for display at your school.
