Our Mad Scientists
Chief Mad Scientist
Allen is passionate about children, science, and teaching, which makes him an ideal Chief Mad Scientist. Prior to starting Mad Science of Southern MA & RI in the summer of 2002, he had spent over 20 years as an Engineering Manager in various aspects of the semiconductor industry. Mad Science is a welcome change.
Teresa sees the challenge of coordinating all of the Mad Scientists and kits and take homes as a giant puzzle to be solved. She loves science and sharing it with others. She believes that it is important for students to take an interest in science early.
Sales & Marketing Manager
Jon originally hails from northern New York State, so he still doesn't understand why people make such a big deal about New England winters. After spending time studying Shakespeare in London and a few years performing in NY and Boston, he found himself in RI and eventually found his way to Mad Science.
Bruceis a retired science teacher of 34 plus years. He has taught a variety of science subjects, and the students loved his fun approach to teaching these subjects. There were a lot of hands on activities both inside and outside. He is also a former runner and still enjoys staying fit.
Carol retired from teaching after 34 years. Students always enjoyed her classes because of her hands on approach. She joined Mad Science because she very much missed working with students and the creative aspect of teaching.
Julie is a recent college graduate. She joined Mad Science because she knows that if you make a topic fun, students are more likely to not only pay attention, but also remember it. She loves to help kids learn about science in a way that makes learning fun for them.
Ken loves teaching and loves science, so being a Mad Scientist is a natural fit. When not teaching young minds science, he is teaching teenagers how to drive! He is also an active member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, so he also teaches swordsmanship.
Lori has an M.Ed in Early Childhood Education and has extensive experience with children. She has taught in a variety of preschool settings and has learned to interact with a diverse number of people. While she can speak in front of a group of parents, she is MUCH more comfortable dealing with a room full of children.
Rosie is a student at university on track to become an early childhood teacher. She loves Mad Science for the chance to teach children and to help them cultivate their interests and curiosity.
Sean has a passion for science in general, and zoology in particular. Before finding the trail to Mad Science, he spent time working in Disney's Animal Kingdom and at various zoos throughout New England. Sean is also an avid musician.
Sara is a student at university, and when she was a kid, she was obsessed with 'experimenting' and 'inventing' new things. She wants to make sure that the children who are in the Mad Science programs feel the wonder that comes with discovering something new!
Steve has been a Middle School Science teacher, and throughout his teaching he has loved sparking the "aha moment" when children are engaged in science. His passion for science and his outgoing personality are great assets to being a Mad Scientist.
