Family Science Nights

Introduce your school community to the exciting world of science by having Mad Science conduct your Science Night. Our Family Science Night packages include two hours of fun science, including wacky demonstrations and hands-on experiments that will amuse, captivate and thrill all who attend!

Family Science Night packages include:

Science Show: We kick off the night with a spectacular science show. This highly interactive show will entertain students and parents alike. See chemical reactions, fantastic forces and our giant foam factory! Click here for a list of available shows.

Fun Science Stations: Each station is staffed by professional Mad Scientists and filled with interactive exhibits, which will help students understand scientific principles. Students and parents will rotate through hands-on science discovery stations. Here are just a few of our many Science Discovery Stations:

Magnetic Bridge Challenge: Explore the magnificent world of magnets! Take up the challenge to build bridges with powerful magnets and magnetically charged hardware.

Weird Science: Discover the amazing properties of dry ice! Learn about sublimation and create a large-scale bubbling potion.

Super Structures: Build an earthquake proof building! Test structures until they collapse! Work to figure out which shapes are the strongest.

Current Events: Explore electrical current and build a complete circuit to flash lights or activate a buzzer.

Make & Take Science Stations: Students will make and take home science projects related to the Science Stations they visit. Here are a few of our popular Make & Take Booth options:

Optical Illusions: Learn how our eyes can play tricks on us! Use a camera obscura, uncover the science of holograms and explore 3-D. Take home your own pair of spectrum glasses.

Energy Burst: Test the concepts of potential and kinetic energy. Take home your own Mad Science Boink to experiment at home.

Ballistic Bouncy Balls: Combine powdered polymer and a chemical reaction to make your own energetic sphere to play with.

Slippery Slime: Discover the ooey gooey origins of plastic and make your own batch of slippery slime.

The Family Science Night is typically a two hour program, which includes a 30 minute show 60- 90 minutes to explore all of the Fun Science Stations and Make & Take Stations. Our Mad Scientists bring all of the equipment and materials to your school to make the entire event hassle-free. Science Night packages are tailored to fit your needs for any number of students.

If your school has had a Family Science Night with us in the past, please mention this when scheduling for NEW Family Science Night programming.
