Mad Science of Western New England is the leading science enrichment provider in the region. Since 1998, we have been providing fun, innovative STEM programs for kids! Our unique after school and summer programs are interactive, hands-on & above all, a blast. At Mad Science, we believe that fostering a love for science, technology, engineering and math at a young age will give children the confidence they need to excel in these fields.
Fall: Join Mad Science for Mad Labs!
Mad Labs is a hands-on exploration of sights, sounds, nature and more! Optical illusions, the secret components of white light and hidden rainbows, and movies explore our sense of sight. Other senses, such as taste, and hearing are investigated too. Explore cells with a microscope, investigate bugs, why nutrition is so important and how ecosystems work. Explore heat, volcanoes, earthquakes and even weather!
