Does STAAR have you calling out SOS?

Rescue your 3rd through 8th graders with Mad Science's SYSTEMS OF STAAR!!!

Look no further!

We are the #1 source for STAAR enrichment, remediation and test preparation for your 3rd through 8th graders in science.  For over a decade we have helped Elementary and Middle schools with TAKS (now STAAR).  We have before/after data to prove it!

Mad Science will conduct a pre-assessment, a plan to close gaps (in earth, physical and life sciences), deliver the program and wrap up with a post-assessment to show the progress achieved. Schools use us during the Spring term to get 5th and 8th graders polished-up for the Science portion.

With over $100,000 in hands-on learning equipment, Mad Science of Dallas & Fort Worth is your teacher's ultimate partner for all things STAAR.

Call us at (972) 241-0475 to learn more about how we can help your students ace the STAAR Science test!

I get the gist, but how does the Systems of STAAR work?

The SOS is a series of one-hour workshops that utilize 'hands-on' learning workshops to experience the TEKS principles covered in STAAR testing.  In each workshop, experiments and demonstrations are used to help students reinforce the objectives and concepts taught by the teacher - in topics covering earth science, life science and physical science. It all starts with a pre-assessment, leading to a plan to close the gaps identified in the assessment. We work closely with your teachers to create the proper scope and sequence for our workshsops. At the end of the program we conduct a post-assessment to measure improvements.

How thorough is the coverage in the Systems of STAAR?

Mad Science offers the flexibility for you to be as in-depth as you want to be. These hands-on workshops can be a combination of earth sciences, life sciences and physical sciences - depending on where your students' TEKS gaps are, as relates to the concepts covered in STAAR. It includes on-site delivery, Texas SB9 compliant instructors, pre and post testing.

Does the Systems of STAAR replace classroom instruction?

No! WE DO NOT REPLACE YOUR TEACHERS! Our role is to help them extend and enhance their impact in their class room by providing them state-of-the-art technology equipment to drive home the TEKS Science concepts they cover in their classes. Think of us a 'mobile science lab' for your science teacher!.

Why should we use the Systems of STAAR in our school?

Anyone who has spent more than five minutes with children in Elementary and Middle schools knows how long their attention spans are… Get the picture? Programs that use different methods of teaching get through to students differently; we use visual, tactile, and auditory teaching methods in our workshops. With the Systems of STAAR, students experience the TEKS Science objectives, not just hear about them.

What if we can’t spare the time?

We will work with your needs! Ideally, the sessions should be conducted during class time so that all students have the opportunity to be involved. However, we can conduct after school sessions, schedule individual objective workshops, or customize other programs. Just ask!

Still need more information? Want to book an SOS?
