mad labs
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: Crazy Chemworks!
New Dates: 10/23, 10/30, 11/6, 11/13, 11/20, 11/27, 12/4, (NO CLASS ON 12/11), 12/18.

We'll learn about the tools scientists use in their laboratories, as well as atoms, molecules and reactions, acids and bases, fluorescence and phosphorescence. We'll also examine and investigate super sticky things by exploring suction, hydrogen bonding and static cling. We'll also see some very cool dry ice demonstrations! Continue the science at home with fun labware take-homes and experiments.

Winter: EUREKA Invention
Children overcome a series of challenges using basic materials, simple machines, tips from famous inventors, and most importantly, their minds. With a bit of ingenuity, they create catapults and forts, construct working light sticks, and assemble a set of circuits with batteries and light bulbs.
