Information

Our in-class workshops are ideal for children from primary through to year 7. Each workshop is accompanied by a Teacher Resource Pack to help educators maximize the learning experience before and after each Mad Science workshop.

 

Benefits for teachers…

Teachers do not always have the time and resources required to prepare interactive science programmes. Mad Science’s experienced instructors come right into the teacher’s classroom with all the equipment, supplies, and staff.
Our programmes are fun, educational and focus on real world science and engineering practices that work to reinforce science concepts and methodologies.

 

How it works for teachers:

  • Choose one, or a series, of workshops from our extensive list of science topics.
  • Book a date and time:
    • Date: It is suggested that you reserve your workshop approximately 6 weeks in advance, thus allowing you time to complete the pre-workshop exercise.
    • Time: Mad Science workshops last between 30 minutes and 1 hour.
  • Download the Teacher Resource Package from the link you receive once you have booked your workshop. The Teacher Resource Package is filled with crosscutting concepts to help you integrate the content covered by the workshop. It provides you with activities to do before, and after, the workshop.
  • The day of the workshop - Have fun! Let us do the work!!

Benefits for students…

Children will learn about science by touching, feeling, and even tasting their science experiments. We leave students inspired and hungry to learn more. We spark imaginative learning!


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

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.

Current Events

Teaches: Force, Motion, Energy
Students problem-solve to create simple circuits that will light a bulb. Hands-on activities also allow them to explore more complex series of circuits. They experience a nerve-tester, Mad Science electricity labs, and our amazing Tooth Tunes device. They also observe how electricity flows through wires and water.

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.

Photosynthesis

Teaches: Life Processes
This workshop provides an introduction to the chemical processes in a plant, plant respiration, and the role of plants in food webs. Students get a chance to examine the role of light in the process, test for starch, and then create a mini greenhouse to observe in class or take home.

All About Animals

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.
