FAQ for Teachers

Mad Science takes all the hassle and frustration out of running an after school science club because we do all the work for you!

Here are some frequently asked questions from schools thinking of running a Mad Science After School Programme:
• What will it cost our school to run an After School Programme?
Nothing, well better than nothing actually! If you invite us to your school to offer an After School Programme to parents, we will deliver a FREE whole school science assembly. All we ask is that you send our registration forms home with pupils inviting parents to sign up to the programme. 
• Who is the free assembly suitable for?
The whole school. We have lots of experience in engaging the children from reception to KS2, each age-group getting something different and memorable from the experience. We are very proud to deliver hundreds of free spectacular science shows like this each year and have become an annual staple for many schools.
• Who is the After School Programme suitable for?
We have different programmes for KS1, KS2 and KS3. Schools can opt to offer to just one key stage or more if they wish.
• Who deals with registration?
We provide all registration forms, customised for your particular programme and dates. We will leave these with you when we come to deliver our assembly and call you a week later to see how many children have registered. We then collect the forms and payments from school and type up the registers back at our office in time for the start of your programme.


• ONLINE registration? From December 2013 we also have ONLINE REGISTRATION which will be rolled out to ALL schools over the coming year. This will mean that all administration and payments are supported by our booking website and will mean even less hassle for school! For schools using online registration we will call you on the registration deadline date to tell you how many children have signed up for the Mad Science After School Programme. 
• If we have enough interest, what does school need to provide?
Just a couple of things. We need a classroom space for one hour after school on a weekly basis for the duration of the programme. We also need there to be a first-aid trained member of staff on site as not all of our presenters are qualified first aiders. Many schools opt for their preferred day of the week on the basis of staff already being on site for other activities but if this is a problem just let us know!
ALL equipment and materials required to run our programmes are provided by us.
• What if we don't get enough registrations?
Then we just say thank you for letting us deliver our show. Sometimes schools choose to fund our After School Programmes but this is not expected and there is no cost commitment of any kind. 
• Who will come to deliver our After School Programme?
Our presenters are highly trained, reliable and great with children. We only recruit individuals who have prior experience of working with groups of children, and we provide full further training to them. Our CRB-checked, fully insured presenters arrive in their lab coats equipped with everything they need for the session at least 15 minutes before the session begins, and they make sure they leave everything neat and tidy when they leave.
• Take-Home Materials: During each class, students take home a science project related to the topic covered in that class. Along with this take-home item, students leave with a summary Take-Home sheet that describes what they learned during class along with additional activities to extend their science fun and learning at home!
