Crazy Chemworks Workshops Science
Chemistry themed workshops that can be booked as individual sessions. Topics include: Chem in a Flash; Chem-Mystery; The Glow Show; Icky Sticky Stuff; Junior Reactors, Lab Works; Phantastic pH Phestival.
$201- $350
Optical Illusions Science
Students will be exposed to a wide variety of optical illusions like the camera obscura, the mirror mirage and various other classic illusions. The concepts of refraction, the science of optics and the biology associated with sight will be covered. Periscopes will be introduced and after an instructional demonstration on the science and design behind the periscope, the children will construct their own to take home.
$201- $350
Earthworks Science
Great topic for the 2013 Summer Reading Program - Dig into Reading. Children find out that the earth beneath their feet is more than meets the eye in this introductory program on earth science. They discover what the Earth is composed of and how various forces combine to create rocks and minerals. Kids will uncover the forces that create earthquakes, the natural faults in the Earth's crust and even how mountains are formed. They will see minerals fluoresce before their eyes and create their own sedimentary stacker to take home.
$201- $350
Digging for Dinosaurs Science
GREAT TOPIC to COORDINATE WITH THE 2013 SUMMER READING TOPIC -- DIG INTO READING! We'll take you on a journey to a time when giant retiles ruled the earth. Children will examine real fossil casts and explore the differences in the teeth of herbivorous and carnivorous dinosaurs. Students will participate in a mini-dinosaur excavation and make a cast of a dinosaur tooth to take home.
$201- $350
The Science of Magic Science
How did they do that? It must have been magic! No...it was the clever application of scientific knowledge! As an opener, students will be dazzled by magic with our disappearing rabbit... but is it really magic? We'll challenge them to employ their mind, body and all five senses to determine the explanation of our tricks! During this class they will see and try some of the most classic magic tricks - the Illusion Box,various handkerchief tricks and some newer tricks like Hydrophobic Experience.
$201- $350
Rocket Demo Science
The students will be introduced to the basic parts that make up every rocket. The discussion lays the foundation for the 3 parts of flight and the fundamental principles of rocket flight. To both illustrate and entertain, the children will be involved in a fun balloon-rocket race. With the science behind rockets covered, students will witness the preparation of a rocket for flight and will learn basic pre-launch safety procedures. They will then be brought outside to witness the grand finale - the launch of a model rocket from a launch-pad!
$201- $350
Current Events (Electricity) Science
In this electrifying class, students will be taken on a tour of the electron freeway. Problem-solving abilities, scientific know-how and good retention skills are explored when students tackle the problem of creating a circuit which will light a bulb. It's not as easy as it sounds! After mastering simple circuits, the class will turn to a hands-on exploration of more complex series circuits.
$201- $350
~2015 Summer Reading Workshops~ Science
Mad Science offers many workshop topics that relate well to the 2015 Summer Reading Program theme -- Every Hero has a story. Workshop Topics include: Electricity (Nikola Tesla), All About Animals (Mary Anning), Under Pressure (Daniel Bernoulli), Fun-da-mental Forces (Isaac Newton), Space Phenomena (Caroline Herschel & Maria Mitchell), and more. Please see individual topic listings. Call us for program details at 845-294-5434 or visit our website at www.midhudson.madscience.org
$201- $350
Bugs! Science
Children of all ages have an innate curiosity about the creatures that share our Earth. Although many people consider insects pests, students will learn the important roles bugs play in our ecosystem. They will also explore unique characteristics and attributes of different types of insects and build their very own model insect to take home.
$201- $350
Matter of Fact Science
Through a hands on approach, we introduce children to the structure of atoms and molecules. They will learn how atoms combine to create molecules, examine molecules and molecular bonding. They will learn and observe the difference between physical and chemical changes. As the final experiment in chemical changes, students will have the chance to create their own Mad Science Putty. This lesson provides children the opportunity to develop scientific skills through inquiry based instructional methods.
$201- $350
