Workshop FAQ

Designed by a professional team of educators and scientists, Mad Science workshops are designed to support curriculum requirements and objectives.

We have many workshop topics available and more being added each year.  You'll be sure to find a perfect fit for your group!

What is the difference between your workshop types?
All of our workshops enhance your students' understanding of the curriculum. Pre-school workshops run :45 minutes; school-age programs are :60 in length. Topics include both fun science and those that more directly complement the Ministry of Education's curriculum in Grades 1 - 6.

Are Mad Science workshops just for elementary schools?
Not at all!  We are often booked by day cares, retirement homes, summer camps, church groups, family parties and corporate events.  We've even done weddings to keep the younger guests occupied during speeches!  Often, a workshop is a great fit for small parties or get togethers.

Church groups? Can you support Vacation Bible School (VBS) themes?
You bet! We believe that science has a place in religion.  If your group is studying a particular theme, let us know.  We are able to customize programs for almost any group.

What other kinds of groups can you serve?
We're available for even the most unique types of events including:
  • Weddings (to keep the little ones edu-tained during speeches!).
  • Retirement homes for both residents or their visitors!  We're perfect for Grandparents' Day events!
  • Special needs groups for both children and adults.  We have fabulous instructors available to work with all abilities.
  • Home school groups!  We'll come to you or you can book into our Mad Lab (subject to Mad Lab availability).
  • Libraries.  Ask us how we can complement your Summer Reading Program!
  • Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Sparks, Brownies and Guides.
  • Holiday parties. 
  • Block parties and family re-unions.
  • Baby showers.
  • Any place there are children, Mad Science will be there!

  • Does everyone always take something home from a workshop?
    Yes! A take-home activity is part of every workshop program. Most of the time, the item is built during the workshop. In some workshops, the activity requires no assembly and will be given to the children at the end of the workshop.

    Can I book my workshop in the Mad Lab? Is there an extra charge?
    There is no extra charge for booking a workshop in the Mad Lab during business hours (subject to availability). For an after hours or weekend booking, please call (519) 839-6094 for custom pricing.

    Is a workshop expensive?
    A workshop is the most affordable Mad Science product we offer! Our regular price for a 60 minute workshop is $160 plus HST (and travel if your location is outside the City of Windsor) for up to 25 students. We often put our workshops on special for P.A. Days, holidays and summer vacations and you can save $10 per booking.

    I'm a teacher at a school that hosts the After School Program. Do I get any discounts?
    All teachers at an After School Program Partner School always get the best price on workshops, even if they're not on sale.  That's just one of the ways we like to give back to our school partners!

    What happens if I have more than 25 students?
    We can add additional children to a maximum of 35 children in total for $1.25 each plus HST. If your group has more than 35 students, we will need to divide your group into multiple workshops since our programs have a specific child-equipment ratio.

    How does it work with JK and SK groups?
    We have special programs for our little friends. Pre-School Workshops are 45 minutes long and feature kindergarten-friendly topics (and some school-age topics that have been specially modified). Cost for these workshops is $120 plus HST and travel (if applicable) for groups up to 20 students. Up to 5 additional students can be added for $1.25 each.

    How long in advance do I need to book?
    We recommend 4 - 6 weeks before your event date. If you are going to be using our Teacher Resource Package to complement the workshop, allow a little extra time to go over the pre-events with your class before we come out for the actual workshop.  Just call (519) 839-6094 for more information or to book your workshop!

    Do you have a guarantee?
    Yes! You will be pleased with your Mad Science workshop or we will make it right! No questions asked!

    If you have any other questions, please call us at (519) 839-6094.
