Virtual STEAM Bundle

Yes we have virtual programming!

We have a number of topics available through Mad Science and our Crayola Imagine Arts Academy brands for the Science Lab and Art Studio portions of the Girls First Program (with a little overlap in other areas as well). If you are working on your STEMinist Challenge Badge, we can help there too.

Virtual programs are live and unmuted so that participants can interact with the instructor and with each other. A big part of our in-person programs is the hands-on aspect, which we didn't want to lose in moving to a virtual format. Therefore, we provide supply packs so that your girls will have the materials to be able to follow along and perform the activities at home. We deliver (or ship) supply packs to you centrally assuming you already have a distribution system in place.

We use Zoom for our virtual programs.

We also provide extension activities for the girls to pursue at home after the program, which you can use as individual activities, or as a follow-up meeting if you would like.

FAQ

For the DaVinci workshop do we need to do both on the same meeting night? If you want to have them on the same night, we can do that, but spreading them out to 2 different nights is what we thought you would want.

What are in the supply packs? It's probably easier to list what isn't. Girls will need scissors, a pencil, a glass of water and mess containment materials (papertowel, newspaper for table etc), and perhaps a bowl. Everything else that is needed to complete the activities are provided in the supply packs. A website of extension materials is also provided to that girls can explore the topic beyond the hour of structured programming or so that if a girl missed the meeting, she would still be able to do the supply pack activities. If your girls all have access to washable markers we can offer premium topics without changing the price.

What does 'far away' mean for shipping? These rates are for programs delivered in the Niagara, London and Windsor Mad Science territories. We cannot deliver programming if you are in a different Mad Science territory, you will have to contact your local office. If it costs us more than our budget of $18 to get the materials to you, we pass on the additional cost.

How far in advance do we need to book? We will need to assemble the supply kits for your program and deliver them to you, then you will need time to distribute them to your girls. Trying to do all this in less than 2 weeks could get stressful. Not impossible, but...

Can we do 2 of the same brand rather than one of each? Mad Science has been around for 21 years, but our Crayola Imagine Arts Academy programs only rolled out 3 years ago. When our accountant asks why we are selling a program for less than it costs to run, we say 'marketing'. If you want 2 Crayola Imagine Arts Academy topics we can do that, but you can't use the DaVinci bundle to get 2 Mad Science programs.
