We offer the following spectacular shows:

Are you looking for the perfect touch of spookiness for your Halloween event this year? Our Mad Science Halloween Special Event is just the thing. Our 45-minute presentation will have your audience gasping and laughing at the Mad Scientist’s peculiar and chilling science experiments. Through a mixture of science and magic the children will see a paper spider turn into a ‘real-live’ spider. Hear the tales of Count Eggbert and Countess Eggberta as they battle the wicked witch. Watch as the wicked witch is melted right before your eyes! Then, as a grand finale, the Mad Scientist will introduce the audience to the eerie world of Dry Ice, making bubbling potions and lots of fearsome fog. All will have an evening of gruesome goodness and fun!

Fire and IceThis 45-minute presentation is designed to introduce science to elementary age children. In it, the Mad Scientist will use simple but exciting science experiments and demonstrations to involve your group in the discovery process of science. They will learn how to make a 'scientific hypothesis' and how to test that hypothesis using 'experimentation'. Included in the event will be experiments involving air pressure, flash paper, Eggbert, Bernoulli's Principle and dry ice. There will also be some opportunity for members of the audience to participate in a few of the experiments. The event is very visual and works well in front of any size crowd.

Up, Up and Away!This presentation is geared toward theaters and large school groups in an auditorium setting. A larger and flashier show than the 'Standard' show, this event will capture the audiences' interest and show how exciting science can be. Included in the show are a variety of eye-popping demonstrations and experiments. There will be plenty of opportunity for hands-on audience participation in this event. Some of the topics and demonstrations include the three states of matter, air pressure (using the Madgeburg Sphere), a Hot Air Balloon, the Mad Science Hovercraft, a giant size vortex generator and finally the Big Sneeze demonstration. This show is very visually exciting, has lots of audience participation and works very well for medium to large size audiences. 

Spin, Pop BoomThe Mad Scientist will use simple but exciting science experiments and demonstrations to involve your group in the discovery process of science. Included in the event will be such experiments as the "Famous, Flaming Didgeridoo" and the "Fantastic Flying Foam Factory". There will also be some audience participation. Spectacular experiments spark the children's curiosity and highlight the very best of Mad Science.

Sounds Like Science -  Our newest Special Event addition and is perfect for your younger audience. This show highlights the sense of sound. Through a combination of demonstrations and audience participation we bring the science of sound to your children.  Among the experiments the students will witness how sound waves travel using both the audience and a Slinky.  They'll participate in creating a rainstorm complete with rain, thunder and lighting.  And for a finale we'll get to hear the quack of Quacker the Duck, the growl of Terry the Tiger and the roar of Rex the T-Rex. A very fun and friendly show.


Be Tobacco FreeWhat is it? 
A high energy, fast-paced demonstration for large groups of children grades K-6 that graphically show tobacco's effects. Through an exciting, educational and entertaining program, children will experience first-hand, the unpleasant, and unhealthy aspects of tobacco use.

What are the benefits? 
Offers a great opportunity to tobacco-proof children in a fun and interactive way, and leaves a lasting impression. Pre and post activities can easily be used for language arts, math and social studies extensions.

Is this a recognized program? Be Tobacco Free is a fully adapted program that meets National Science Education Standards. Mad Science is also a proud member of AAAS, NAEYC and NSTA.
