FAQ for Parents

My child would love to do Mad Science after school, tell me more!

Here are some frequently asked questions from parents thinking of registering their child for a Mad Science After School Programme:
• What will it cost to attend Mad Science After School Clubs?
Our prices vary depending on how many weeks they run and there are some discounts available. Sometimes schools will subsidise the cost of the club. The letter your child brings home will have full price information OR if your school is using our online registration facility the price will be on the online booking page.
• 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.
• What will my child do each week?
Our After School Programmes focus on hands-on learning. We bring in cool demonstrations, yes, but it's the hands-on activities that they really love. Each week their session will be themed around a different topic. The topics are described in the letter your child brings home OR, for online booking, on our booking page. We also focus on teaching kids the basic principles of scientific method: having theories, making predictions, carrying out fair tests (experiments), making observations and reaching conclusions. Just like real scientists! Each week your child will also be given a 'take home' science toy or project to extend the fun and learning beyond the club session. 
• Who will deliver the Mad Science After School Programme?
Our presenters are highly trained, enthusiastic, great with children and, of course, passionate about science! We only recruit individuals who have prior experience of working with groups of children, and we provide full further training to them. All presenters are CRB-checked and fully insured. Often our presenters are science graduates or undergraduates or student teachers. We're also delighted to have in the team a number of retired teachers who just love being back in the classroom doing the most fun part of teaching, hands-on activities!


• How do I register my child?

You need to follow the instructions on the letter your child sent home. We are currently in transition to an online registration system but some schools are still collecting registrations forms and payments back into the school office.
