Mad Science is hiring for the Fall Season 2018!
Mad Science is the world’s leading provider of science based education and entertainment. If you have a desire to “spark imaginative learning” in elementary school kids, consider becoming a true Mad Scientist!
We are currently hiring seasonal, part-time INSTRUCTORS for our After-School Science Enrichment Programs. These programs offer children fun, hands-on experiments, science based activities and a take-home project to reinforce the scientific principals explored during the class. If you are interested in honing your classroom management skills while gaining teaching experience and having an absolute blast, we are the place for you!
What are Mad Science After-School Science Enrichment Programs?
Our “edutaining” classes take place at various schools, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 1 and 5pm, and usually run for 8 full weeks. Time varies per school.
During the hour long sessions, the students get a take-home project to both reinforce the science concepts they explored and also encourage kids to share what they learn with their parents.
Our programs are designed to teach scientific concepts in a way that kids K-6th grade can understand while having fun!
