Mad Science

Is Your Child “Mad” About Science? Join for hands-on science fun!

We are excited to partner with Mad Science of the Capital District to offer the following outstanding and unique science programs! All programs are curriculum-correlated and meet S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) objectives. Professional equipment and materials will be used. All supplies are included. These programs will encourage team-building, as we work collaboratively to solve real-world S.T.E.M. problems!

Taste Buds

Learn about the biology behind your “buds”and take home your very own taste test kit! Children develop a taste for science! Children get hands-on with magnifiers, model tongues, and mirrors to see what their own tongues look like – and test the classic model of the “tongue map”. A quick tasting test sorts out which class members are supertasters. The instructor uses spoonfuls of sugar to show sugar content in popular children’s drinks. A nose-plugging experiment links taste and smell, and children scientifically sniff-out extracted scents.

Who: K-5
When: Wednesday, June 29, 10:00am-11:00am
Where: Queensbury WHBI school, classroom #121

  • Resident cost: $15/class
  • Non-resident cost: $25/class
  • Class sizes: 10-20 


Test your skills and learn how the pros do it through careful observation and techniques to handle evidence properly. Using your Whodunit Kit™ take home, you can practice the skills of recall and observation.

Visit the North and South Poles and frolic in invisible fields. Children use magnetic wands, explore magnetic attracting and repelling forces, confuse compass needles, and magnetize paper clips. Entertaining demonstrations show the magnet’s gravity-defying abilities and educate children about the Earth’s magnetic properties. Play with some of the wildest forces in the universe!
