MAD SCIENCE North England
School Workshops & Science Days
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for coming to visit Camelsdale School the other week. The children (and teachers) absolutely loved it and have really been inspired. We have had super feedback about the whole week and have really accomplished what we set out to do, so thank you.

What are your SCHOOL'S STEM GOALS?
Mad Science can help you to meet your School's objectives...
Do you want to create a real EXCITEMENT for Science with both Pupils and Teachers?
We've been working in UK schools for 15 years! It's not just what we do, it's the way that we do it that keeps us coming back year after year. We're MAD about Science and we make sure that you feel as excited about it as we do! All of our programmes are designed to create memorable and lasting experiences.
Do you want to engage every pupil in the school on one day?
Our School Science Day packages are designed to give every single pupil in your school an exciting and engaging Science experience... all in one day! We usually launch the day with a high-energy Science Show during your assembly, and then visit each classroom with a 1 hour Workshop. Expect dynamic Mad Scientists, hands-on experiments and not-to-be-missed live demonstrations.
Do you want to launch a specific topic?
Which topic will you be focussing on this term? With a workshop for every Science topic on the national curriculum we can deliver a really exciting class to boost-start a level of energy and enthusiasm that your pupils will be able to carry right through into the rest of the term!
Do you need to deliver a more consistent focus on STEM in your school?
Our Mad Scientists can visit your whole school or a specific class or year group, with a series of workshops delivered over the term. We will work with your pupils to engage them with the many exciting Science topics on the curriculum, helping both pupils and teachers to feel more comfortable and enthusuasic about Science. Our teacher support packages include suggestions about further experiments and about cross curricular links with other subjects.
Are you looking for a School Field Trip that ticks the STEM theme box?
Why not let us come to you? Save on the hassle and expense of arranging coach travel and let us bring a Science Museum Experience to your school. Children can rotate in groups around a series of themed activity stations or mini-workshops, and interact with our team of amazing and energetic Mad Scientists!
Are you feeling limited by school budgets?
Some of the schools we work with offer our Mad Science In-School Field Trips to parents, in the same way that other external activities and outings are offered. Just call our friendly office to find out more!
Our inspiring experiments help children to interact with each other, think about outcomes and celebrate their successes.

Plants, Animals including Humans
Earth and Space
Forces and Magnets

"We had a fantastic day, Naz was brilliant with the students and several staff have commented on how great the assembly was."
Oaklands School- Cheshire
"During the whole-school assembly, you could really see and hear the children's excitement at what was delivered. The individual sessions in class went down a storm too. The children especially loved making slime and have not stopped talking about the experience since."
