Mad Science Curriculum-Based Workshops complement your curriculum and inspire students and teachers alike by making science fun! Developed to satisfy the Ontario Science & Technology Curriculum standards, our workshops cover most of the lessons in each particular strand.
Professionally-trained Mad Science Instructors arrive at your classroom door with half-day lessons in a box that students won't want to put a lid on. Mad Science Workshops provide everything teachers need to satisfy their course requirements with discussions, demonstrations, and hands-on activities. Teaching science the Mad Science way can make a half-day of class time last a lifetime.
What Can We Expect? Each workshop delivers two hours of interactive science fun through dynamic demonstrations and discussions, tons of hands-on activities and cool take home projects. The learning with be focused around your chosen topic and will meet many of the learning expectations of the curriculum
When Is The Best Time to Book? Our workshops are great as an introductory kick-off for any unit. They also make an awesome culminating celebration at the end of your unit. As a teacher, you will receive a helpful pre and post package with additional information and cool activities for your students.
Who Are The Workshops For? We have topics suitable for each grade, from JK/SK students, right up to grade 6. Each workshop can accommodate up to 25 students (or one class).
What Do We Need To Provide? Our Presenter will arrive in plenty of time to set up in your classroom. All we need is a table or a couple of desks to present from. We may need to access water but it isn't necessary to have a sink in the room. Parent volunteers are not required however, they are welcome to join in the fun!
