Hands-on | Kids Out and About Austin

Mad Science San Antonio

We make it our mission to spark imaginative learning! Mad science is the leading science enrichment provider for children in pre-kindergarten through grade 5. We deliver unique, hands-on science experiences to children. During after-school programs, children engage in exciting hands-on activities, watch spectacular demonstrations, participate in inquiry-based discussions and take home things that they have made themselves like model rockets, periscopes, Mad Science putty, and more!
