Using LEGO® bricks, kids build a different engineering-themed project in each class. They explore different engineering fields including mechanical, structural, aerospace, nautical, and bioengineering. They use critical thinking and creative problem-solving to test and improve their creations.
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 slime, experiment with different reactions, and learn to use the tools that chemists use. Polymers and catalysts are only two of the fascinating concepts our young Mad Scientists explore in this thrilling trip through the chemistry lab!
Here's what schools have to say about our after-school programs!
My son attended the Earth, Space & Beyond Mad Science Camp last summer and absolutely loved it! The hours were convenient for our family, and the location was close by for us. We're sending him again to a Mad Science camp this upcoming summer. These are well run camps, in our experience, and I recommend them for people looking for a fun, science-based camp experience.
Silver Spring, MD
Both of our boys did Mad Science summer camps when they were younger, and loved the experience! It was a very fun and interactive experience for them. And counselor Beth Morrell is the best!!!
Mad Science is a terrific program for today’s students. Our students have enjoyed the hands-on and challenging experiences that foster creative and higher-level thinking and problem-solving. Our school has appreciated the attention to detail as they use our facilities. Thanks to all at Mad Science!!!
How long are your programs (weeks and hours)?
Our standard program is held immediately after school for 1 hour and typically lasts for 4 or 8 weeks. However, Mad Science can accommodate program requests of 4 to 12 weeks. We will be happy to discuss any atypical scheduling needs.+
Who pays for an after-school program?
Typically, after-school programs are paid for by parents. In some cases, a PTO or other organization may opt to pay part or all of the students' enrollment.+
