BRING A MAD SCIENCE CLUB TO YOUR SCHOOL
Get your students excited about science with extra-curricular enrichment classes held after school, at lunch or nutrition break. Our Science Clubs provide 6 week science enrichment programs wherein students explore a different hands-on topic in science each week at lunch, nutrition break or afterschool.

  • No cost or risk to the school: Parents pay tuition.

  • All Administration and payments handled by Mad Science.

  • Accountable Staff: Our instructors are responsible, respectful & punctual. We have full insurance and they have proper security clearance. Most are teachers!

  • Get the whole school excited about science, not just the kids in the Club: A free Science Show is provided for Partner Schools.

  • Student Scholarships: Unfortunately, the students that benefit most are often the ones that can least afford to enrol. We partner with ProKids to provide FULL SUBSIDY to qualifying families. As well, we provide the school with a number of half price enrollments for students at the school and/or staff use at a participating school.

  • Free Fundraising Booth: Partner Schools receive an activity booth that can be used to generate revenue at a Fun Fair, Play Day, BBQ Night, etc. Value: $305 (a travel charge may apply)

  • Other Partner School Benefits: Auction packages, Science Fair Judges, let us know how we can help your school.


WHY HOST A MAD SCIENCE CLUB?

Mad Science allows schools to provide quality STEM enrichment without requiring further investment in equipment or teacher’s time.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO

  • Provide a table for the Mad Scientist to use for the Show

  • Allow us to drop off the registration forms to each class on the day of the Show.

  • Provide access to classroom space for the times when the Science Club runs.

  • Help support the program by providing reminders to students of deadlines and class days.


WHAT TO EXPECT

A Mad Scientist will present the Science Show in the gym for the whole school. That day, we’ll hand out registration forms to each participating grade. (Payment and registration forms can be returned to the school or we can require families to register only online or by phone through us.) After the registration due date, forms will be collected and organized into class lists that will be provided to the school. Mad Science staff will arrive 10-15 minutes before the start of each Club day. For after-school Clubs, our staff will remain until students are safely picked up following parent instructions.
