Welcome to the world of Mad Science virtual after school programs! The instructor will complete lively demonstrations of incredible experiments and will call on children throughout the program and engage them digitally. Each week the children will get hands-on by building the pre-supplied take-home. There will also be a presentation of extension activities on our weekly theme for you and your child to complete at home after the class. You will be contacted via e-mail prior to the first class on when to pick up your take-home kit at the Kennebunk Parks & Recreation Department's office.
Do you have an excessive enthusiasm for science? Or as we call it, “Mad Science Maine-ia”!? Let’s nourish that enthusiasm and upkeep that curiosity through exciting exploration into the many exciting aspects of Engineering! Become a junior architect and engineer by building model bridges and arches. Discover how airplanes defy gravity as you make a rotor kite twist and an airship twirl. Create a large child-operated pulley system and build a rubber band dragster. Make chemical engineering come to life as you mix up a few
reactive ingredients for some sensational results. Get hands-on with rocket propulsion and blast off rockets across the room. Explore the role of magnetism in our everyday lives with swinging compasses and motorized devices. Put the “loco” in motion and explore Newton’s laws with crash test dummies and rubber band propelled rockets. Imagine, build, design, and have a scientific blast as we channel your excessive enthusiasm in this exciting introduction into the world of Engineering! Min: 8 Max: 20
