Our After-School Program Themes
NASA Academy of Future Space Explorers
NASA and Mad Science collaborate to educate the next generation! Children go on a voyage of discovery with unique hands-on activities, and amazing demonstrations that explore the sun and stars, space technology, rocket science, the atmosphere, planets and moons, and more!
Welcome to the world of chemistry! Children make gooey slime, experiment with different reactions and learn to use the tools that chemists use. Polymers and catalysts are only two of the fascinating concepts young scientists explore in this thrilling trip through the chemistry lab!
What makes your hair stand up? Is it a magnet or magic? And just what are carbs, anyway? Kids explore a variety of introductory topics about the wonders of both the life and physical sciences.
Ever wonder how bridges stand up over water? Or how gravity works? Kids explore a variety of introductory topics in engineering, physics, and chemistry, as they learn how science can impact our everyday lives.
Experiments are the best part of being a Mad Scientist! In this program, kids learn about several specialized areas of science, including geology, meteorology, entomology, and mechanical engineering. We take a look at movie effects and the science behind toys.
In this smorgasbord of science we touch on everything from animals to air pressure. We get molecular with molecules and amped up with electricity. It could get Super Sticky!
