All About Our Performances!
Our Shows are appropriate for Children of all ages!
Each performance is 50-60 minutes.
(Preschool Show is 35-45 minutes)
Our Shows are fast paced and very interactive to keep the children engaged.
Practiced instructors demonstrate science experiments with a flair!
Our Shows can be adapted to any size group.
We can also conduct shows Back-to-back for very large groups or to split the assembly into different age groups.
Performances are hassle free. We provide everything except the children.
We clean up when we are done.
Our Activity Fun Stations provide closer interaction with the Mad Scientist.
Combine Shows with Activity Stations for a complete Science Celebration!
Here's what some people have said about our shows:
The Rec centers are RAVING about their assemblies this summer! The kids loved them and the staff was very impressed with the professionalism (and daring!) of your scientists.
Great Program; everyone enjoyed it!!
Pappas Rehabilitation Hospital
We had Jolting Jonathan and Stellar Steve back to back days at our summer program in Mattapoisett. Both days went great and Jonathan and Steve kept our children engaged and entertained for an hour. All of the activities were age appropriate and the kids truly loved them. Would definitely recommend and will be asking them back!!
What do the children get to do?
Children love the opportunity to show off what they know or what they think will happen next. We encourage them to tell us what they think is going to happen! The constant audience interaction is an integral part of the Mad Science experience. We also use volunteers!+
Is there really educational value?
Absolutely! While the children may not themselves be aware that they are learning, parents and teachers certainly are. Our shows are based on the same teaching methods and materials used in our classroom programs, but with even more entertainment thrown in.+
Are these experiments safe?
You better believe it! As much as we want children to have fun, it's even more important to us that they be safe. Most of what we use are household items used in new and creative ways. Some experiments are for the Mad Scientist only - which, of course, is made perfectly clear!+
How much space do you need?
Enough for your guests to be comfortable as well as a fair-size "safety zone" in which the Mad Scientist can perform. While the experiments are perfectly safe, we want to be sure no one is tripping over our equipment and that the Mad Scientist isn't tripping over your guests!+
Does the show make a mess?
We clean up any mess that we make, and we will leave the performance area as clean (or cleaner) as it was when we arrived.+
Is it like a Magic Show?
NO! We want to show children the DIFFERENCE between magic and science. Sure, magic is fun - and, in fact, we start the show with a magic trick - but with science there are no secrets! We as Mad Scientists get to tell everyone how everything works!+
