A microscope!
There are two 30 minute back to back workshops. The children perform experiments, and participate in demonstrations and get a take home item at the end of the program.
Digging for Dinosaurs - Kids are introduced to the differences between meat-eating and plant-eating animals. They have the opportunity to look at some dinosaur teeth up close and work as paleontologists, by participating in a mini dinosaur dig that engages their attention and helps them improve their scientific knowledge.
Space Frontiers - Take your class on a trip through the solar system and sign them up for the Mad Science Astronaut in Training Program, where they will learn all about the elements of space. Students will even get to take their very own mini rocket home. 


There are two 30 minute back to back workshops. The children perform experiments, and participate in demonstrations and get a take home item at the end of the program.
Sea, Sand & Surf -Children explore the science of the sea and learn about what sand is made from, how shells are used by animals for protection, and what animals live in the ocean. They make their own ocean bottle to take home.
Mad Mixtures -Interactive and hands-on activities give preschoolers an introduction to mixtures, Volcanos and the science of chemistry.
Listen Closely -This workshop introduces kids to the science behind the sounds all around them. Kids experiment with a wave motion model and a twirling tube to help them understand that sound travels in waves and can be heard in a variety of pitches. They also learn about the everyday materials that make a variety of special effects noises in the movies and create their own special effects sounds.
Let's Look Closely - Children discover a world that they might not have realized was there, through the use of mirrors, microscopes, and magnifying glasses. They reveal hidden pictures, learn about reflection and symmetry, and use handheld microscopes to observe objects closely
