Energy, Motion and Nature

Grades 1-5. Energy, Motion, and Nature takes your child on a journey through exploring ecosystems, defying gravity, discovering electricity and more! From mystifying magnets to marvelous molecular bonds, your junior scientist will use hands-on activities and amazing demonstrations to discover physics, ecology, chemistry, and the world around us! Instructor: Mad Science staff. 6 weeks.

The 6 classes consist of:


Dig in to Earth science! Check out rock samples to find out how they were made and where they were formed. Inspect minerals to see them fluoresce. Learn what causes bends and breaks in the Earth's solid rock layer. Use the Experitube Take-Home to see sediment settle into layers!

Current Events

Get charged up about the science of current electricity! Learn how tiny invisible particles power everything from the fridge to the radio. Complete the circuit to light a bulb and sound a buzzer. Experiment to find out what conducts and what doesn't. Build and take home a Circuit Maze to test family and friends.

Fundamental Forces

Time to find out what forces make the universe tick! Hands-on investigation leads us to learn about gravity, inertia, and centripetal force. Students will use a bike wheel gyroscope, a coin-spinning vortex and the amazing balloon centrifuge. Hold on tight!

Matter of Fact

What's smaller than small? Atoms and molecules! Students will learn how atoms combine to make molecules and will examine molecular bonding using molecule models. What's the difference between a chemical and physical change? Your Junior Chemist will be able to tell you after mixing up their very own Mad Science Putty!

All About Animals

It's a zoo in here! Get ready to learn about the incredible and diverse animal kingdom! After learning how animals adapt to their habitat through specialized feet, fur and feathers, students will gain some hands-on experience with real claw and tooth replicas! Activities about classification, camouflage, and life cycles will round out this introduction to zoology. Ready to step into their shoes? Students will create their own animal track casts to take home!

Exploring Ecosystems

Let's explore the fascinating world around us! While learning about the interconnections that exist between all living things (including humans!) this class provides an opportunity to develop scientific skills through inquiry based instructional methods. Young ecologists will build an Eco-Cube and receive a take-home journal so they can continue the ecology adventure at home!
