Boy & Girl Scout Activities



Mad Science offers a variety of scouting programs for both Boy and Girl Scouts designed to help achieve badges, belts and pins. We also offer exciting assembly programs that are perfect for Blue and Gold Banquets, Recruitment Nights and other events your pack or troop may be hosting! Please click here to learn more about our spectacular shows!


Girl and boy scouting badges are earned by children who complete a series of activities related to a particular subject. Our workshops have been used with great success as a fun way to assist scouts with earning their badges!


 Girl Scout Workshops

  • Movers - Launch your troop into the exciting world of aerodynamics! Create your own UFO's (Unique Flying Objects) as you learn about flight and air movement! 
  • Science in Action - Get excited about science! Experiment with gooey Mad Science "Magic Mud", use a chemical reaction to blow up a balloon, and see light in a whole new way with our Mad Science Rainbow Glasses! 
  • Space Explorers- This program addresses topics such as space exploration, the nature of our galaxy and solar system, seasons and phases of the moon, propulsion and Newton’s Laws of Motion, constellations and time 
  • Women in Science - This workshop is intended to foster an appreciation for science and the women who have made significant contributions to their field. In doing so, this workshop also touches on human health and nutrition, animal behavior, anthropology and paleontology.
  • Science Discovery - Get ready to experiment! Use a chemical to uncover a secret design, discover how many drops of water can fit onto one penny, explore mindboggling optical illusions, and test the result friction has on a car in motion!
