Workshop Information


Our in-class workshops are ideal for children from Kindergarten through grade 5. Each workshop is accompanied by a Teacher Resource Package to help educators maximize the learning experience before and after each Mad Science workshop.

Mad Science of Austin and San Antonio can also help your fourth and fifth graders (and your teachers) tackle the STAAR Science Test with the Mad Science STAAR Power Pack,a group of exciting workshops that promote scientific investigation and reasoning skills tailored to the four STAAR reporting categories.  Click here for more information on the STAAR Power Pack.


Here are just a few of our fun and interactive workshops that focus on science and engineering practice:

Fundamental Forces

Teaches: Force, Motion, Energy
Introduces students to the basic concepts of forces. Allows children to encounter their own force of gravity and to see what happens to objects when different forces are applied; this helps to illustrate things like gravity, racetracks, centrifugal, and centripetal force. Children also get a chance to experiment with gyroscopes and loops.

Mineral Mania


Teaches: Earth Science
Discover planet Earth. Peek beneath its crust and uncover what it is made of. Pan for gems that you get to take home.


Teaches: Force, Motion, Energy
This workshop introduces students to the fundamental concepts of electricity: circuits, conductors, insulators, and how electricity is converted for everyday uses. Students get to create different circuits, interact with plasma balls, discover “sticky” static electricity and make their own static energy chambers to take home.



Teaches: Living Systems
Students learn about the interconnections that exist between all living things in an ecosystem, including humans. The nature cycles, food chains and energy webs (producers, consumers and decomposers) within different environments are explored before we make mini-ecosystems that students can observe in class for a month.

Matter of Fact


Teaches: States of Matter
Investigate the ingredients of the universe. Test for chemical or physical changes and use our secret formula to make silly putty to take home.

All About Animals


Teaches: Living Systems
How do animals feed themselves and their young? Which animals hibernate and which ones migrate, and why? How do animals use camouflage and behavior to protect themselves from predators? Students gain a better understanding of the adaptations and characteristics of animals which live in different habitats and environments and then make an animal print to take home.
