About Us

Mad Science is a leading science enrichment provider.

We deliver unique, hands-on science experiences for children that are as entertaining as they are educational.

The Mad Science Group, based out of Montreal, Quebec, has franchises located around the world who bring science education to millions of children each year.  Your MAD SCIENCE OF IOWA is one of those operations, dedicated to serving both Rural and Urban children across the Heartland.  Our innovative programs help kids learn about science through our enriching after-school programs, preschool programs, in-class workshops, camps, fun birthday parties, shows/assemblies and other special events. 

Mad Science encourages scientific literacy in children in an age when science is as vital as reading, writing and arithmetic and we don’t stop there.  For over 25 years, The Mad Science Group in Montreal has invested in research and development and continues to do so. We believe in the importance of being at the forefront of our industry and continue to create hands-on science programming for kids.

Our approach to teaching science invites children to pursue STEM careers ... Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. 


Mad Science of Iowa's Purpose-for-Being Mission

We have a mission, a purpose for being, and we are serious about it. Here it is:

"We aim to spark the imagination and curiosity of all children in central Iowa, and anywhere else we travel, by providing them with educational, entertaining and fun activities instilling a clear understanding of what science is really all about, and how it affects the worlds around them." In fulfillment of this, we are equally intent on delivering:

  • factual, state-of-the-discipline science information
  • contemporary real-world examples of the science applications
  • safety messages for the proper execution of experiments
  • an instructor who is there for the children ... someone who is empathetic, respectful, and worth of being role-modeled
  • an exciting, energetic and animated program from the instructor



Science is a key foundation element to technological development. Technology is the basis for opportunities to enriching and well-paying jobs and careers. Science and technology are expanding at increasingly faster rates almost every year, and the costs of staying abreast of this rapid expansion grow as well. This all puts us in a position of having a society increasingly at risk of becoming one of more-and-more "haves" and "have nots". Consider assisting Mad Science of Iowa in our efforts to moderate this increasingly important social issue.

You may have notice we use in our purpose statement above, the word "all". We realize that is quite a statement to make, and that we cannot accomplish this without assistance. We are interested in creating relationships with corporations, foundations or others who might be interested in helping us bring our programming to less well-off schools, organizations, and families, or those with special circumstances.
