MadScience2020
We are thrilled to partner with Mad Science of the Capital District to offer the following outstanding and unique science programs! These programs are engaging, hands-on learning experiences with interactive, age-appropriate exploration of specific science topics. All programs are curriculum-correlated and meet S.T.E.M./S.T.E.A.M. objectives.
All supplies are included.
For added fun, the children will perform experiments, participate in demonstrations, and have a take-home item at the end of the program!

Each child must attend with a parent or guardian. Please do not bring siblings. Due to the social distancing regulation, there is a maximum attendance number which achieves this requirement. Thank you for your cooperation!
