Midland Park Continuing Education will be sponsoring Mad Science, an enrichment organization, to provide an after-school science program at Highland School, starting May 2022.  In the Mad Science club, students are introduced to science using a hands-on inquiry-based approach in a fun and entertaining way. 


Class size will range from a minimum of thirteen to a maximum of twenty children. Enrollment is open to grades K-6 and is offered strictly on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please look at the days and dates carefully, as there are no makeup classes for individual absences. Makeup classes will only be scheduled for cancelled classes.



$105.00 (three week program)

All three (3) sessions are located at Highland School Cafeteria from 4:00-5:00 p.m.



PLANETS AND MOONS: Tuesday, May 17th

In this class, students set off on a voyage to discover the Solar System. Students impersonate the planets to compare their sizes and distances from the Sun, recreate a solar and lunar eclipse, and become particles on a voyage into a planet's core. Students build the Mad Science Gravity Assisted Launcher that models how planetary gravity assists on space probes.


SPACE TECHNOLOGY: Tuesday, May 24th 

Space Technology starts with an exploration of space related technologies used on Earth. Students will help laser light through a maze, use principles of radar technology to find hidden mountains, and discover the importance of points of reference to depth perception.

SPACE TRAVEL: Tuesday, May 31st

In Space Travel, students will launch their investigation of rocket propulsion using the compressed air inside balloons for thrust. The class will race balloon rockets and be challenged to devise a balloon-powered rocket car.
