Discover the excitement of Mad Science at your local camp, community center, school and YMCA! Mad Science engages children in scientific explorations that are so much fun that children will forget that they're learning!
Campers can team up with fellow engineers to build a bridge, participate in an unforgettable dinosaur dig, build and launch a model rocket and explore the science behind their favorite sports. Campers will create, build and assemble a variety of take-home projects while exploring how science affects the world around them.
Mad Science has the best camps!
Bricks 4 Kidz® is devoted to providing an extraordinary atmosphere for children, where we learn, we build, and we play with LEGO® Bricks. Classes are designed to teach the fundamentals of S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education, built around our proprietary model plans, inspired by engineers and architects. At Bricks 4 Kidz, we believe that kids learn best through activities that engage their curiosity and creativity.
Our Founder's Story
When Gary F retired, he looked at his wife's business -- Mad Science of the Bay Area -- and asked why she was not impacting very many low socio-economic schools. Her answer was straight-forward:
“It’s the demographics. The families whose children attend those schools and the schools themselves are not able to afford our program.”
The next day the A-STEM Plus scholarship model was born.
