Curriculum-Based Workshops

Would you like to enhance your science curriculum?

Look no further!

With professional lesson plans, unique equipment, and animated instructors, Mad Science's in-class interactive workshops are an ideal way to reinforce core science concepts. Classes can include a Mad Science take-home like our colourful bouncy balls, gooey slime, eye-popping diffraction glasses, and zapping circuit mazes.


THE FIVE SENSES (grades P-2)

Make your voice just like Darth Vader's using our amplified frequency modulator; uncover the hidden colours in everyday light; and take our CO2 taste test. This class will stimulate students to think about the basic concepts behind seeing, hearing, smelling, touching, and tasting. 


BUGS (grades P-2) 

By examining insect specimens and models, students will identify and investigate the common characteristics of insects. The students will also learn about how insects contribute to the environment through the spread of pollen. At the end of this class, students will have an idea of what it’s like to be a creepy crawler as they see the world through a bug’s eyes—literally!

SOLID, LIQUID, GAS (grades P-2) 

In this class we explore the three states of matter, turn water to ice in minutes, and make bubbling potions of white bubbles and thick fog using dry ice.



Charge up on static electricity! In this class we'll conduct hair-raising experiments and explore the characteritics of magnets. At the end, we'll have a tug-of-war using the super power of electromagnetism. 


LIGHT & SOUND (grades 3-6)

This class is all about waves! We compare the properties of visible light to the properties of other types of electromagnetic radiation. We explore the relationship between frequency and colour (in light) and frequency and pitch (in sound). Tying this all together, students will get a chance to "see" the vibrations made by their own voices.  


LET'S GET CHEMICAL (grades 3-6)

In this class students will get to participate in a series of hands-on reactions and learn the indicators of physical versus chemical changes.  


ELECTRICITY (grades 3-6)

Students will take a tour on the electron freeway! Investigate conductors, insulators, and other elements in the world of circuit electricity as well as experiment with both static electricity and electromagnetism. 



This is an explosive class of particle theory, heat changes, and hands-on physical and chemical reactions.

SLIME TIME (grades P-6)

Ooze into a gooey hour of sliming around! Learn about polymers and the signs of chemical reactions as we compare "physical-reaction" slime and "chemical-reaction" slime. And of course students will make their very own batch of Mad Science slime to take home with them!


FLIGHT (grades P-6)

Join Bernoulli as we take an exciting look at the science behind air pressure and aerodynamics. Students will learn about vacuums and the powers of atmospheric pressure as well as how this science links to an understanding of lift, drag, and thrust.


SIMPLE MACHINES (grades 3-6)

See how simple machines lighten your load! Launch with levers, secure with screws, and work with wedges. Use pulleys to move heavy objects with ease. Gravity and friction will all be put through a Mad Science test as students work together using inclined planes.

ROCKET DEMO (grades 3-6) 

Discover the principles behind rocket flight and witness a NASA-style launch of a NASA-approved model rocket that will soar into the air and then return to earth by parachute.
