Hello everyone,

Come watch some cool science on a hot day:


Friday, July 22, 1pm, Keith Anderson Community House, Mad Science of Maine

The show will be the Mad Science Physics Olympics of 2016.  It will start off with lighting the Mad Science Olympic torch with a spectacular combustion reaction with colored flames to reflect our national pride.  Test out your strength and discover the wonders of air pressure in a tug-of-war challenge, learn about cycling with a gyroscope that will make your head spin, and more!  This show is guaranteed to inspire kids to get active.  Designed for kids ages 4-12, but fun for the whole family (Free!).
