Mad Science

MAD SCIENCE PHILOSOPHY




"We are noted for our trademark 'edu-tainment' philosophy, which cultivates incredible enthusiasm and a sense of wonder in children. We believe that children are born scientists, naturally curious about the world around them and full of questions waiting to be engaged. Our core philosophies that science should be fun, hands-on, engaging, and inquiry based help frame how we develop and facilitate our camp programs. Our experiential and inquiry-based approaches are central to giving your child a scientifically awesome experience as we put a special focus on questioning and experimentation. We seek to inspire "agency" in children and place an emphasis on trying new things, learning by doing, and enjoying the process of discovery."
