NASA plans to have human explorers on Mars by the year 2035. Therefore, our students are at the perfect age to lead this new exciting phase of space exploration!
NASA and Mad Science collaborate to inspire the next generation! Children go on a voyage of discovery with unique hands-on activities, and amazing demonstrations that explore the sun and stars, space technology, rocket science, the atmosphere, planets and moons, and more!

Planets and Moons
Explore the farthest reaches of our solar system and create a lunar eclipse in this “mad” planetary tour! Learn how the planets stack up. Build and take home the Gravity Launcher™, a fun and educational 3-D magnetic satellite launch game!

Atmosphere and Beyond
We’re on a mission to explore the atmosphere on Earth, and beyond! Travel to the end of the rainbow and make a sunset! Mix up various planetary atmospheres, one molecule at a time! Discover how stars would look in space and see what makes stars twinkle using your very own Meteorological stations™.

Space Phenomena
Probe the mysteries of meteors and bounce around satellite light in this phenomenal program on space events! See comets up close as one is formed before your eyes, and take home your very own James Webb Model Space Telescope™!

Sun and Stars
This stellar program is your ticket to the stars! Watch star dust burn, and journey through a soapy galaxy as you investigate the life cycle of stars! Use your Cosmic Disc™ to create a constellation frisbee!

Rocket Science
This is your chance to be a rocket scientist! Investigate the four forces of flight with the help of a Unique Flying Object! Explore the science involved in rocket construction as you build your own Straw Rocket that you can take home!

Space Travel
Learn what it takes to be a true globetrotter! Race a balloon rocket and design your own car engine as you learn about thrust. See the principles of propulsion at work in a real rocket launch, and build your very own Shuttle Copter™ to fly to the skies!

Space Technology
Discover technology designed for outer space! Steer a laser beam through a laser maze, find hidden mountains using the principles of radar technology and discover everyday objects originally designed for use in space! Take home a spacey Stereoscopic Viewer™ to see why two cameras are better than one!

Living in Space
Live the life of an astronaut as you suit up for space flight! Find out how much you would weigh if you lived on Pluto and how old you would be if you lived on Saturn. Participate in a space mission and make your very own Space Food to take home, hydrate, and enjoy!
