Mad Science Performances

Mad Science Performances are flexible and can be customized to suit your needs, schedule, budget, or audience size.

Shows are held at the location of your choice and are 45 minutes to an hour in length.  Multiple shows and activity stations can provide up to a full day of science fun.

Mad Science uses a technique of inquiry-based education with a mix of entertainment (we call it "edutainment") combined with hands-on activities to help children learn by doing.  Each show is conducted by a fully trained and qualified Mad Scientist and runs for about 45 to 60 minutes.  During each show, the Mad Scientist challenges the audience with animated questions and some kids are asked to volunteer to help the Mad Scientist, making the event as interactive as possible for those in attendance.  This is not a magic show.  We explain the science behind all of the activities to the kids with an inquiry based method to keep the children engaged.  (Slightly longer or shorter shows can be provided.) 

We offer the following spectacular shows:

Fire and Ice — Children will be dazzled and entertained as they interact with our Mad Scientists!  Foggy dry ice storms, giant beach balls floating in the air and even a special Mad Science “burp” potion will amaze children as they learn about the scientific method, air pressure and the states of matter.

Up, Up and Away! — This spellbinding special event introduces children to the principles of air and pressure. Hot air balloons, vortex generators and even a hovercraft will help children understand the power of air.

Marvels of Motion — This interactive event is all about the fundamentals of moving science with Newton’s Laws of Motion. Discover the science of gravity and balance, kinetic beads, and watch us remove a tablecloth without clearing the table! All of these experiments are done with household objects.

The Flight Stuff — This highflying outdoor event introduces children to the principles of flight and rocketry. In this show, the Mad Scientists will introduce concepts such as lift, drag, and thrust while conducting experiments ranging from simple paper airplanes, to balloons, all the way to launching actual Mad Science rockets! (This show is designed to be presented outdoors.)

3..2..1..Energize — This exciting special event examines the various forms of energy we encounter on a daily basis. From sound, heat, electricity, and more... the audience will be energized. Make music with boomwhackers, explore the colors of the rainbow and even see hidden colors, feel your hair stand on end with the Van Der Graaf generator, see lightning in action, even watch the Mad Scientist mix up a batch of exothermic elephant toothpaste!

Preschool Show — The Preschool Show draws specific experiments from our school age shows that are tailored to younger minds. It is an exciting show that explores, balance, energy, chemistry, physics, and so much more…all while being presented in a dynamic and interactive way to captivate and educate curious preschool minds!
