In today's fast growing world of medicine and technology one Kansas City company has positioned themselves as a global leader in the race to educate our youth. Mad Science of Kansas City is an innovative corporation poised to prepare our children for the future. Owners Dave and Kathy Smythe have been in business for nine years with their headquarters located in Overland Park. Their company offers birthday parties, workshops and afterschool programs designed to excite young minds. With over two hundred kits available to teach there is never a loss of material or fun. Whether it's Chem-mystery or Radical Robots, Mad Science combines hands on experiments with an emphasis on sparking the imagination. Kids learn the properties of dry ice, the physics behind the four forces of flight and recreating crime scenes using super investigative techniques. Kids test tensile strength of fabrics, perform blood typing experiments (with fake blood of course) and can attend one of the many summercamps that Mad Science has to offer. N.A.S.A. has combined efforts with Mad Science and hold space camps here in the metro. Children learn about the life cycle of stars, stellar nebulas, life in space and rocket science.
Mad Science is a global corporation with franchises located around the world teaching millions of children. They pride themselves in preparing children for S.T.E.M. careers (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Children are encouraged through hands on experiments designed to achieve scientific literacy.
Mad Science of Greater Kansas City recently won "Franchise of the Year" award. With many of the 39 schools of the Kansas City School District currently utilizing their programs it is no wonder. You can find Mad Science shows at the Kansas City Zoo's Jazzo Night, downtown at the Power and Light District or Science City at Union Station. Wacky, weird and wild summer camps also lead to the success of the company as a whole. Kids can choose from Crazy Chemistry, Radical Reactions, Organ Trail or Junior Engineers. Ultimately the success of Mad Science is attributed to its employees. Each Mad Scientist is fired up about teaching science. They are carefully screened to ensure safety of the children and come from a variety of backgrounds from teaching to acting. Everyone employed at Mad Science would agree it's the best job in the world. It is their enthusiasm and commitment to education that sparks young minds and delivers a top notch experience here in the heartland.
