Mad Science Group was founded in 1985 in Montreal, Canada, by Ariel and Ron Shlien. Their hobby of conducting spectacular science experiments, to the amazement of the children in their neighborhood, grew from a passion into a thriving business. Mad Science is now a global enrichment company that brings the love of science in a unique, hands-on way to millions of children every year!
Mad Science of Washington was opened in 1995 by a husband-wife team of two Montgomery County Public School teachers. The staff of Mad Science has deep roots in the DC area. This gives us a unique perspective as educators, students, and parents across the entire metro area- from Baltimore to Quantico, and everything in between. Today, Mad Science of Washington averages approximately 150 workshops per month, many of which are tailored to meet curriculum standards. In addition, we run over 350 after-school enrichment classes per year, 250 assemblies per year, and over 700 birthday parties per year.
