Description

Mad Science brings you the excitement and wonder of space in this program, featuring exciting activities co-developed with NASA. Children will be taken on a voyage of space discovery through hand-on activities, amazing demonstrations and take home experiments each class. Explore the sun, moon, stars and planets; including earths own atmosphere and other space phenomena. Learn what it's like to travel and live in space and work with the technology that has been developed for space exploration. Investigate the forces of flight by building your own ROCKET! By presenting an experience that is truly out of this world we hope to inspire future space scientists and maybe even astronauts to Mars and beyond…
