Preschool Age Workshops

All of our programs can be adapted to suit the interests and understanding of
preschool aged children.

Mad Science Preschool Programs are engaging hands-on learning experiences for children aged 4-6. Each workshop is an interactive, age-appropriate exploration of a specific science topic. From air, our animal friends and butterflies to water, weather and worms, each themed program is designed to captivate the curious nature of young children. Preschoolers enjoy engaging demonstrations, perform simple experiments and will discover how science can help us better understand the world around us!

Our workshops last 30 to 45 minutes, but the interest they spark can last a lifetime. Each program comes with a complimentary Teacher Resource Package to help educators maximize the learning experience.
