Sources of Forces!

Mad Science after-school programs offer children a chance to see just how cool science can be!  Programs available in 6-week standard and 4-week express formats.

  • Fantastic Fliers  Learn about the four forces that affect flight. Try to move a straw from behind a barrier with just your breath. Build several different shapes of paper planes and airships and test them to see which are the most aerodynamic. Challenge your friends after class to see whose Sky Hawk Foam Plane travels farthest!

  • Science of Magic  Watch as the Mad Scientist produces spheres from water, as if by magic! Learn the crayon mind-reading trick and discover how Houdini performed a popular escape trick. Be amazed as water disappears from a cup and build your own Curious Cube to make common household items vanish.

  • Under Pressure  Air is all around us, but most people don’t realize how much air pressure affects our lives. Learn how to move a ping pong ball from one cup to another using just air. Race your fellow students in a hair dryer relay. Take home your own Air Blaster rocket launcher.

  • Fun-damental Forces  Experiment with centre of mass, centripetal force and gyroscopes. Learn about the science of precession and how a spinning bike wheel creates a unique force. Race your friends and experiment with coins in vortex and take home our cool Gravity Game!

  • Super Structures  Discover how tension and compression act on everyday structures. Construct a Roman Arch and learn about the various shapes that engineers use to design the strongest buildings and bring home your own Bridge Basics kit. [6 week program only]

  • Che-Mystery  Witness the Mad Scientist light a match after taking it out of water. Learn about crystals and make a colloid suspension liquid that’s solid if you hit it, but liquid if you pour it. Discover the differences between chemical and physical reactions and take home your own Dynamic Dish!
