Special Events highlight the very best of Mad Science! Our high-energy demonstrations are fun, educational, spectacular and sure to leave your guests with memories that last well beyond our grand finale. We offer two, 40-minute Special Event shows for the younger audiences; "What Hot and What's Not" and "Wacky Science" and our newest "Sounds Like Science". Each of these shows work well with just about any sized group. The only requirements are a table, access to water and electricity and, of course, your group of young scientists!
What’s Hot and What’s Not” is designed to introduce pre-school age children to the world of science. In it, the Mad Scientist will use simple but exciting experiments and demonstrations to involve your group in the discovery process of science. After a colorful magic trick, we will investigate the story of flash paper and help our little friend Eggbert on a scientific journey. Our dry ice experiments, bubbling potions and fantastic dry ice finale will also mesmerize your children! The event is very visual, encourages plenty of interaction between the Mad Scientist and the audience.
“Wacky Science” features several different aspects of science. The audience will learn what a polymer is and will get to watch a brave volunteer make a giant batch of Slime with their bare hands! They will also be amazed as the Mad Scientist uses science to melt the ‘Wicked Witch of the West’ right before their eyes. Next, the children will learn about static electricity from demonstrations with a Van de Graaff generator. One of the victims…er…children will even get to touch the Van de Graaff for a ‘hair raising’ experience. We round off the event with our very popular Dry Ice demonstrations.
“Sounds Like Science” is our newest Special Event addition and is perfect for your preschool audience. This 40-minute 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 preschool friendly show.
