Explore the chemistry of everyday life. Become a Mad Scientist as you use chemical reactions to devour steel wool, experiment with polymers by mixing up a batch of slime, and learn about acids and bases while testing the pH of various substances. Join us for a week of classic experiments and crazy concoctions with spectacular hands-on activities.
Experience the mysterious wonder of chemistry and get muddy with non-Newtonian fluids. Watch chemicals react to make colors appear and disappear. Take the lab home with your own Dynamic Dish.
Chem in a Flash
Hop on board the chemistry express for a high-speed science experience! Perform instantaneous experiments in this fast-paced class on split-second reactions that go like mad! Pick up an Action Flask and have a blast!
Dry Ice Capades
Explore the three states of matter. Melt metal in boiling water, build a giant bubbling potion and freeze water with just a breath of dry ice! Use your Thermocolor Cup to test the temperature of liquid matter in your home!
Glow Show
Probe the properties of light and explore applications of glow-in-the-dark technology! Discover amazing things that glow in the dark and watch chemiluminescence as two liquids mix to create light! Have at-home fun in the dark with your Glow Sheet!
Junior Reactors
Learn about the periodic table, atoms and molecules. Discover how atoms combine to make molecules. Use your set of Atomic Coins to build samples of some simple molecules.
Kitchen Chemistry
Explore the laboratory that we call a kitchen as you test for protein. Learn about the power of baking soda in food and how living organisms cause bread to rise. Investigate your digestive system and take home a Digester Inspector.
Lab Works
Delve into the world of the Mad Science laboratory. Learn the proper names and uses of various pieces of laboratory equipment. Take home your very own Graduated Gear to start your own lab and continue your research!
pH Phactor
Slide down the colorful pH scale and dip into the world of acids and bases! Explore the pH extremes with your Reaction Tube Kit that will be a popping experience! Investigate whether liquids found at home are acids or bases using your pH Paper!
Slime Time
Ooze into a gooey hour of sliming around! Learn about polymers and their unusual properties while taking part in a series of slimy experiments. Create your own concoction of Mad Science Slime to take home.
Super Sticky Stuff
Stick it to the walls, and push the power of tape to the limits in this adhesive hour on things that cling! Build a bond with glue and get attached to Professor Beakerdude!
