Set your preschool program apart by offering STEM curriculum at an early age!

  

Mad Science can enhance your science program with inquiry-based workshops that meet Louisiana Early Childhood curriculum requirements! We offer topics such as:

 

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, racetrack, centrifugal, and centripetal force. Children also get a chance to experiment with gyroscopes and loops.

Current Events

Teaches: Force, Motion, Energy
Students problem-solve to create simple circuits that will light a bulb. Hands-on activities also allow them to explore more complex series of circuits. They experience a nerve-tester, Mad Science electricity labs, and our amazing Tooth Tunes device. They also observe how electricity flows through wires and water.

Electricity

Teaches: Force, Motion, Energy
What is light?  We will understand that white light is made of a rainbow of colors.  We will have fun catching shadows on a phosphorescent paperboard.  We will take home a rainbow peephole to diffract white light.

Life Sciences

 

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.

Photosynthesis

Teaches: Life Processes
This workshop provides an introduction to the chemical processes in a plant, plant respiration, and the role of plants in food webs. Students get a chance to examine the role of light in the process, test for starch, and then create a mini greenhouse to observe in class or 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.


 

Our preschool workshops are designed to engage young children in the wonders of science! Through the workshop, children will learn how to:

  • Accurately observe materials in front of them

  • Ask questions about what they see, hear, smell, and feel

  • Form hypotheses related to experiments

  • Compare the outcome of an experiment to their formed hypotheses
