Mad Science can enhance your science lessons (or science week) with inquiry-based workshops that meet the UK primary science curriculum. A Mad Science workshop is a convenient way to offer pupils a hands-on science experience without the hassle of leaving the school.
Workshops & Science Days
With professional lesson plans, unique equipment as well as animated and specialist science practitioners, Mad Science workshops are designed to complement your school’s science curriculum and offer children a truly engaging learning experience. These interactive sessions are aligned to STEM objectives and are:
· Suitable for school focus weeks – numeracy, literacy, science
· An exciting way to launch a term’s topic
· Great for gifted and talented and family learning sessions
· Inclusive of pre and post lesson plans
· Suitable for the whole school including pre-school children
Mad Science has over 70 different topics on offer; including 300 practical hands-on experiments. Children can learn about the properties of materials by making slimey concoctions and learn about forces whilst enjoying hovercraft rides; we also design, build and launch our own rockets - plus lots more! All Mad Science sessions are designed to show pupils how much fun learning and science can be.
Our workshops last 60 minutes and cater for up to 30 children. Prices start from only £80 each!
Our Science Days give your whole school a taste of Mad Science, with an exciting introductory show followed by targeted workshops for each class. Our science days can be customised to suit school’s requirements and/or themes. Previous examples include Olympics, James Bond 007 and Space Frontiers.
Here's what our customers think about our workshops:
"I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Jules and her team who came to Towcester Primary last Thursday for an assembly, rocket launch and workshops. I am so incredibly impressed at how brilliant you all were. The children were so excited and engaged in science!! We all had a great day. Professional, fun and perfectly organised. Thank you once again."
Catherine Barnes, Science Subject Leader
Carefully correlated to the EFYS curriculum, all of our pre-school workshops aim to deliver an understanding of the world around us, through practical and stimulating experiments and classes. The classes also offer cross curriculum learning, with numeracy and vocabulary being particularly obvious.
Mad Science Pre-school Workshops are engaging hands-on learning experiences for preschool children aged 3-5. Each workshop is an interactive, age-appropriate exploration of a specific science topic. From air, our animal friends and butterflies to water, weather and worms, each themed session is designed to captivate the curious minds of young children. They will enjoy engaging demonstrations, perform simple experiments and will discover how science can help us better understand the world they live
Our pre-school workshops last 30 to 45 minutes, but the interest they spark can last a lifetime.
