Mad Science STEM Learning Lab Program Information

Mad Science of Hampton Roads has been offering fun and interactive after-school enrichment programs to local schools since January 2008. Our STEM Learning Labs program is a turn-key solution, allowing the Principal and PTA to focus their efforts elsewhere.  Mad Science aims to create a long-term partnership with the school, PTA and parents. 

What’s included:  

  • School Assembly Kick-off: Immediately before or during registration, our high-energy, action-packed 30 minute performances will get your students excited about science. All of our assemblies support Virginia's Standards of Learning. If you face space constraints, we're happy to provide two assemblies, split by grade level. 
  • Marketing and Registration Materials: Registration is handled by Mad Science of Hampton Roads. Flyers and other marketing materials will be provided before the registration period. 
  • Payment Processing: Mad Science will collect all funds on your behalf through check or credit card, via our secure site. 
  • Scheduling and Rosters: We confirm all participants, create class rosters and communicate with parents regarding the program. 
  • Instruction: Mad Science provides all equipment and materials. Our certified instructors arrive in Mad Science lab coats at least 15 minutes before class to set-up their equipment. Every Mad Scientist assumes responsibility for each student in his/her care until released to an authorized parent or guardian. 
  • Take-home Materials: In each class, every student will take home a science project related to that week's class topic. 
  • Fundraising Support: To help your school with its fundraising efforts, Mad Science will donate a gift certificate for a Mad Science In-class Workshop or Birthday Party.  These are frequently used in PTA auctions or raffles. 
  • Science Fair Judging: We will be happy to send a Mad Scientist to your science fair to participate in the activities, judge the entries or award the prizes.    

We handle all registrations, payments and other program details or we can work with your established system. Mad Science STEM Learning Labs are available any day (based upon availability) of the week and run in Fall I, Winter or Spring sessions. We offer a 8-week program where students meet for 1 hour a week after-school. There is no obligation or cost to your organization. If enrollment does not meet the minimum (12 students), we cancel the class. We will create and provide the class rosters before the first class so you can let your teachers know which students are participating in the Mad Science STEM Learning Lab.
