Calling all Creators, Inventors, Visionaries, and Future Explorers! Jump into the future afterschool with Mad Science! With our innovative programming, we will inspire your child to not just ride the wave of the future, but to create it! In this exciting new program, we will embark on a quest for alternative energy by experimenting with parabolic mirrors and fuel cells, find hidden mountains using the principles of radar technology, and create a telephone network to connect with your classmates. And just when you thought the future could not get any brighter, you will have the chance to jump in to the atomic make-up of matter, use a large child-operated pulley system, and make a soccer robot score a goal! In this after school program, we don’t just look to the future, but jump into it!
