Each session is filled with learning and fun
Aligned with Texas TEKS
Sessions for K-2 grades are about sparking imaginative learning, using high energy, excitement and demonstrations.
For your student in grades 3-5, the emphasis shifts a bit more to STEM vocabulary, grade-aligned content and experiments, using common household items.
All are delivered from our DFW based STEM Teaching Studio with the Zoom platform. We suggest one session a day, in the AM or PM.
Engaging and interactive
Captivating a young audience is what we are known for. We carry this to our live online delivery. Over the past 30 years, we have assembled an impressive collection of programs - we have them ready to roll.
Whether it is watching a fire & Ice show, making instant ice cream or an explanation of how volcanoes work, our STEM enrichment instructors are engaging your student while also teaching.
Mad science is well known for Project Based Learning (PBL). We'll use the demonstrations and experiments to drive concepts and reinforce them.
Where we need students to engage in collaborative workshops, we'll inform parents about the basic household items to be needed for the session, so everyone is ready for the session.

This is to provide flexibility for parents to purchase only what their student needs. Institutional prices are established by RFP process, validated through co-operative purchasing via EPCNT.+
How is TEKS represented in each session?
All Mad Science programs are TEKS-aligned, having been delivered to 1000s of students already in the DFW metroplex. Currently most school districts are using Spring 2020 Science TEKS blocks 3 and 4. We are incorporating these as applicable and appropriate, while preserving the 'fun' aspect in each session.+
Do institutions receive additional services and data for their students?
Yes. Mad Science will organize session-invitations by home-room teacher and send these directly to them for posting in (say) Google Classrooms. Parents can also receive an online 'post-session-assessment form' to be completed. The results are returned back to the teacher or other authorized individuals at the campus /district.+
