Mad Science

Sparking imaginative learning for over 15 years!

Mad Science of Washington was opened in 1995 by a husband-wife team, who taught in MCPS schools. The staff of Mad Science has deep roots in the DC metro area, all of whom have attended school in the area. This gives us a unique perspective as educators, students, and parents in the area. Today, Mad Science of Washington averages aproximately 150 workshops per month, many of which are tailored to meet curriculum standards. In addition, we run over 350 after-school enrichment classes per year, 250 assemblies per year, and over 700 birthday parties per year.

Mission: Mad Science® is on a mission to spark the imagination and curiosity of children by providing them with fun, interactive and educational programs that instill a clear understanding of what science is really about and how it affects their world.

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! Thanks for all you do to Spark Imaginative Learning in our future leaders
