Fall 2018
Have you ever wondered what clouds are made of, what goes on underneath the surface of the eather or how toys work? Join Mad Science after school to discover these countless wonders of science! Neither rain nor snow will disrupt our hands-on exploration into the world of meteorology and voyages to the center of the Earth! We'll investigate sound waves, suit up for a flight into space, and take a spacewalk mission that simulates a solar panel repair on the International Space Station. Inspect minerals with an ultraviolet light to see them fluoresce, investigate 3-D technology, and experience how this effect makes us feel like part of the action. Albert Einstein said, "The process of scientific discovery is, in effect, a continual flight from wonder." There is no limit to the wonder and imagination when exploring the many marvels of science. Classes include: Movie Effects, Earthworks, Living in Space, Science of Toys, Sonic Sounds, Walloping Weather, Life in the Sea, and Mix It Up.



Spring 2019
Robotics has never been this exciting! The applications of robotics is all around us and we invite girls and boys to discover first-hand the design, construction, and application of modern-day robotics. Through the integration of exciting modular robotics learning systems and various types of robots children will discover how robotic devices use sensors to learn about their environment and how people use robots to get work done. Explore the mechanical aspects of robots, circuitry, and programming. Discover circuits using squishy conductive dough and snap together circuit-board modules to perform exciting functions. Spend a class navigating programmable robots through obstacle courses. Children will have the opportunity to build their very own robot to take home with them. Mad Science has spent years developing robotics programs for elementary students; we can confidently say that we have robotics down to a science! Classes include: Robot Challenge, Gear it up, Robot Building (TableTop Robot), Robots In Action, Shocking Isn’t It?, Real Life Robots, Get Your Code On, & Sensory Overload.
