Preschool Workshops

Our preschool workshops offer hands-on learning experiences for kids ages 3-4. Each one is an age-appropriate exploration of a single science topic, like air, animals, weather, and worms. Kids enjoy engaging demos, perform simple experiments, and discover how science helps us understand our world.

Happy Customers

Here's what teachers have to say about our workshops!

For the past 3 years a Mad Scientist has been providing instructions to our Head Start classrooms. The activities are all hands-on and engaging. The activities always relate to our studies and our children enjoy using different materials. At the end of the lesson each child is given a take home activity that enforces the objective and creates a home-school connection.

At Lycée Français, we have run afterschool and summer programs with Mad Science Chicago for close to 15 years now, and they have always gone above and beyond our expectations. That level of consistency over such a long period of time is rare, and extremely valuable. Mad Science guarantees knowledgeable and experienced instructors, a strong science curriculum and great take-home projects.

FAQ

Does everyone always take something home from a workshop?

Yes! A take-home activity is part of every workshop program. Most of the time, the item is built during the workshop. In some workshops, the activity requires no assembly and will be given to the children at the end of the workshop.

+

How long in advance do I need to book?

We recommend 4-6 weeks before your event date. If you are going to be using our Teacher Resource Guide to complement the workshop, allow a little extra time to go over the pre-events with your class before the actual workshop.

+

For what ages are Mad Science workshops appropriate?

Our workshops are appropriate for children between ages 3-4 for preschool workshops and ages 5-12 for elementary-level workshops.
