Some of our After-School Program Themes
More themes available throughout the year
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 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 forensics, geology, kinesiology, meteorology, entomology, and mechanical engineering.
Kids find out how science is at work in the world around them! They learn about the animal kingdom, both on land and under the sea. They make mixtures and explore the science of motion and energy. They also discover the technology that powers our modern world and keeps us connected.
Step into our AA with a Mad Science pedometer and come on a journey with us inside the human body!Excavate a real dissection to learn about body systems and nutrition;create a slimy blood clot to bring home;use glow in the dark technology to discover how to protect our skin; use microslide viewers and test tubes to view cells and DNA close up;This program is jam packed with both knowledge and fun!
