Preschool & Kindergarten Workshop Descriptions





This workshop sounds like a whole lot of fun! Children will explore the science of sound and discover sound waves, vibrations and frequencies with interactive hands-on experiments. See how sound travels in waves with the Mad Science Wave Demonstrator. Children will experiment with a variety of tuning forks to feel some good vibes and create their own waves and music as a member of the Mad Science Orchestra. Children will also learn how the ear sends those sweet sounds to our brains. Take Home Project: The Mad Science Sound Horn. 


OUTER SPACE - Jr. Explorers

Jr. Astronauts set out on a mission to experience life in outer space and explore the various challenges and demands facing Astronauts while in space. Learn how Astronauts have to work together as a team and adapt to the harsh conditions when living, working and breathing in space. Participate in Mission Mad Science and discover how difficult it really is to complete even the simplest of tasks in space. Take Home Project: The Mad Science Air Blaster Rocket. 


Get en"grossed" in bugs. Students learn about pollination, bug anatomy, bug defense systems and how these creepy crawly creatures adapt. This workshop also includes a Mad Science Insect-a-vision* for each student to take home so they can see from an insects perspective. This workshop help children further appreciate the role bugs play in our world.
The Science of Toys
Toys are more than just fun - they're science! Through toy-themed activity centers, students will explore and learn about motors, magnets, balance, potential and kinetic energy and the centre of gravity. The learning and fun continues at home with their very own Mad Science Spring Thing* which reinforces the concepts of energy. Fun learning at it's best!
Slippery Science
Let's explore the awesome world of Polymers! Children will learn about atoms and molecules and then discover some super stretchy molecules know as Polymers. Children will also concoct their own Polymer - they're very own batch of ooey gooey Mad Science Slime*. Gross! One of our most popular workshops, Slippery Science is a sure fire hit!!

Bubbling Potions
One of our most popular Mad Science Workshops. Safe Demonstrations with Dry Ice will excite and engage children as they learn about the three states of matter in this highly visual and interactive workshop. Children can sample a Mad Science Burp Potion and pop some super cool bubbles from the patented Mad Science shower. This workshop is a child and teacher favorite!


Kids love Dinosaurs and so does Mad Science! We will explore the world of dinosaurs, learning about herbivores, carnivores and omnivores. Junior Paleontologists will see how we share dinosaur bones and then examine several fossil casts of real dinosaurs. We finish up this awesome workshop with students staining their very own Mad Science T-Rex Tooth* to take home.

This is the only class where it's okay to stick out your tongue at the teacher! Children discover that those little bumps on their tongue help us identify the flavors in the food we eat. Students will put their taste buds to the test where we identify the four main flavors in our food. A fun workshop which explores the yummy biology behind our taste buds.

Keep in Touch
In this workshop children will learn that touch teaches us about many things and how some things are safe to touch while others are not.  Children will learn how some parts of our bodies are more sensitive than others and how nerve endings and the number of nerve endings affect this.  We will also explore how may professions depend on the sense of touch and how important this sense is in our lives.  Students will make their own Mad Science Putty and will feel what its like to mold different shapes in their hands.
