About Mad Science (website)

It's important that children continue to learn and explore the world of science while schools are closed! In an effort to support parents with at-home learning, we’ve compiled a list of at-home experiments that you can do with your kids using household ingredients. Family time can be both entertaining and educational!

We’re here to make sure that your child’s birthday is everything they’ve dreamed of! Our chemical reaction experiments, rocket launches, cotton candy making, and ready-to-go Goody Bags, loaded with multiple science-themed toys, are sure to make their day extra special!

Our after-school programs are as fun as they are educational. Our hands-on science programs cover different science topics including electricity, magnetism, optics, biology and more. They are a perfect break between school and homework!
