Information

Our in-class workshops are ideal for children from Kindergarten through to grade 6. Each workshop is accompanied by a Teacher Resource Package to help educators maximize the learning experience before and after each Mad Science workshop.

Here are just a few of our fun and interactive workshops that focus on science and engineering practice:

 

Workshop Subjects

Fundamental Forces

Teaches: Force, Motion, Energy
Introduces students to the basic concepts of forces. Allows children to encounter their own force of gravity And to see what happens to objects when different forces are applied; this helps to illustrate things like gravity, racetrack, centrifugal, and centripetal force. Children also get a chance to experiment with gyroscopes and loops.

Matter of Fact

Teaches: Atoms, Molecules, Polymers

This workshop introduces children to the structure of atoms and molecules. Students will learn how atoms combine to create molecules, and will examine molecular bonding using models. Through a hands-on approach, students will learn and observe the difference between physical and chemical changes.

Electricity

Teaches: Force, Motion, Energy
This workshop introduces students to the fundamental concepts of electricity: circuits, conductors, insulators, and how electricity is converted for everyday uses. Students get to create different circuits, interact with plasma balls, discover “sticky” static electricity and make their own static energy chambers to take home.

Ecosystems

Teaches: Living Systems
Students learn about the interconnections that exist between all living things in an ecosystem, including humans. The nature cycles, food chains and energy webs (producers, consumers and decomposers) within different environments are explored before we make mini-ecosystems that students can observe in class for a month.

Where's the Air

Teaches: Air Pressure, Mass, Vacuun

This workshop introduces the concept of air pressure through hands-on activities that encourage students to interact with the principles of air pressure. They are given the opportunity to apply this knowledge while experimenting with their own flying devices.

All About Animals (availability varies)

Teaches: Living Systems
How do animals feed themselves and their young? Which animals hibernate and which ones migrate, and why? How do animals use camouflage and behavior to protect themselves from predators? Students gain a better understanding of the adaptations and characteristics of animals which live in different habitats and environments and then make an animal print to take home.
