Birthday Parties
Mad Science visited our son's school, and he asked if he could have a mad science party for his sixth
birthday. We wanted to let you know how happy we were with the show.
Ty was our mad scientist and he was great! He was totally engaging and
knew exactly how to keep the kids well behaved. He was professional and
a really likeable guy. One of our guests made a point to tell us that
she overheard the kids saying it was the best birthday party they've
ever been to. We will definitely recommend Ty and your business to
other parents looking for an exciting birthday party idea.

Thanks,
Chris & Carrie-Lynn

Brian is an absolutely outstanding Mad Scientist!! The presentation he put on for Walden in January as well as the one he did two years ago were super!! His energy level and enthusiasm, his engagement with the audience, and his presentation of science were all top-notch. I teach science everyday and have taught it for the last 29 years. I strive everyday to engage my students like that! I'm sure you already know all of this, but it's always nice to give (and hear!) positive feedback!

Thank you so much for the Machines program this
afternoon. You clearly enjoy your work and it shows!
Needless to say, the children AND their parents
definitely gave this program a "thumbs up".

Hi Brian:
Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the "Sounds Like Science" show that kicked-off our Fizz Boom Read! summer reading program here at Howland Public Library. You certainly gave us some BOOM! The kids and adults really had a great time learning about sound. They especially liked being able to go up and "help." The program and instructor were just perfect!

Thanks again!

Pattie e-mailed to let us know that the after school class this week is being rescheduled. Ethan was quite upset and said "how am I suppose to make it a week without Mad Science?!" My boys absolutely love it so I want to say thank you!

My daughter Sierra has thoroughly enjoyed your after school program at Lakewood Elementary, I can't thank you enough. The questions that have come from it and the confidence in the knowledge she has gained is amazing. Here is a quote I came across which once again reminds me how thankful I am that she was involved with your organization this Fall.

“Many adults are put off when youngsters pose scientific questions. Children ask why the sun is yellow, or what a dream is, or how deep you can dig a hole, or when is the world’s birthday, or why we have toes. Too many teachers and parents answer with irritation or ridicule, or quickly move on to something else. Why adults should pretend to omniscience before a five-year-old, I can’t for the life of me understand. What’s wrong with admitting that you don’t know? Children soon recognize that somehow this kind of question annoys many adults. A few more experiences like this, and another child has been lost to science. There are many better responses. If we have an idea of the answer, we could try to explain. If we don’t, we could go to the encyclopedia or the library. Or we might say to the child: “I don’t know the answer. Maybe no one knows. Maybe when you grow up, you’ll be the first to find out.””
— Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as the Candle in The Dark

I just wanted to send a quick note to Mad Science. Your program is fantastic! We just enrolled our 1st grader for the April program. He is too excited! He attended the fall program and just loved everyone and everything about it.
Thank you so much!
Sincerely,

I wanted to pass along some feedback. :) I work at Evans Elem and Brian was here doing a school presentation last week. The kids LOVED it and were talking about it all day. I could hear them laughing from down the hall. (A nice sound!) :) The teachers were also very pleased with the program. Just thought I would share some positive feedback, as the Mad Science programs always seem to be such a hit with kids and adults, alike!

We had our Mad Science party today and it was perfect. It all worked out so well especially since it rained today. The kids really enjoyed it. The "scientist" (sorry I' can't remember her name now....) was great.
Thanks!

We recently had a presenter, Brian Crandall, do assemblies and workshops for our 5th and 6th grade classes. This was probably one of the best shows I've ever had the privilege of helping bring to a school.

The show (and it is indeed a performance!) features music, dancing, jokes, fun and a whole lot of science. This is not a science "lecture" - there is a lot audience participation; it is really one of the most entertaining performances I have seen at a school. That the kids are actually learning something is wonderful; the teachers can go back and expand on what the kids saw. I had kids THANKING me for bringing him to the school. My own daughter called it "epic." Teachers were thrilled - some snuck in the second assembly because they heard it was so much fun and the kids were so jazzed about what they were seeing. I was in the hallway at a different school event last night and a 6th grader came up and said, "He's coming to my OWN classroom on Tuesday!" It's a rare thing to see kids that excited about anything!

Teachers have asked me if we can expand this to other grades next year.

Every year the highlight of our trip to the Dutchess County Fair is the Mad Science booth. My kids can't wait to see you guys "blow stuff up" or "make giant clouds". Thanks for inspiring my children!
