Mad Science birthday party - Dinosaurs!



Mad Science Party

Sponsored Event

It's Party time!
Mad Science Singapore sprung a surprise for me on my birthday in school. It was an hour long party that is kindly sponsored by the good people of Mad Science.
Not knowing what we expect, the whole class was transported to the first days of life ; back to the era of dinosaurs!


Surprise!

In the beginning

When Daddy was first approached by Mad Science to sponsor a party in school, Daddy was a little apprehensive as he was unsure if he could arrange the party. The school does allow birthday celebrations for a specific period of time, but this is an hour long programme involving external vendors. However upon discussions with Mad Science, the school gladly open its doors with the knowledge that the party will be an educational one with cool science experiments and demonstrations.
With all systems go , it's time to party!
Mad science experiment
The party is about 1 hour long. We started off with an introduction of the different types of dinosaurs, science demonstrations followed by 3 hands on experiments.

Dinosaurs ABC

As the theme of the party was Dinosaurs , we were bought back through time to get to know the different dinosaurs who stepped on this world before. Hosted by a very capable Mad Scientist, Radiation Jason, the party quickly gathers pace with the introduction of the different dinosaurs.
Say hi to the Dinosaurs
To be honest, Daddy can only identify one of the dinosaurs, T -Rex. However he was amazed when my classmates can identify all of the dinosaurs introduced!
The party was for a class of 30. Radiation Jason did a fantastic job keeping me and my class engaged and interested during the introduction. The class was participative as well as vocal. Daddy was pleasantly surprised that 1 mad scientist can capture the huge audience of kids.
Get up close and personal with dinosaurs
There are also 2 additional mad scientist crew to assist . They are there for the experiment portion of the party. Given a ratio of 10 : 1 , we felt that the party was well organised and the flow well pace and smooth.

Awe struck
Most importantly , the kids were having a blast and were no doubt intrigue by the Mad Scientist , Radiation Jason. Applause for getting and keeping the attention of 30 preschool kids within such a short time. Hats off to that.

Radiation Jason roars!

Dinosaur Experiment

After the introduction , we were shown a quick demonstration on how the dinosaurs become fossils. Being the birthday boy, I get the privilege of co-presenting this demonstration.

The experiment

Up next are the hands on experiments.

Paleontologists in training

Since the dinosaurs are already buried deep into the ground, we were trained to be Paleontologists to dig up the bones. We learn that digging up bones is a delicate affair as we would need to preserve each one in its original form.

Get ready to dig!
The bones are ready for the dig in individual boxes. There are about 3 to 4 Paleontologists to each box. We like the fact that everything is when prepared and there are minimum need to clean up after the party. The realistic setting also intrigues us in our search for the lost dinosaur bones.

Slime time!

Slime time

Next experiment is the making of slime which is a trademark of Mad Scientist party. We get to create our own slime and we were allowed to bring them home after the party!


Dino Tooth

The best party of the party is saved for the last. We get to create our very own Dino tooth!

Getting all excited as we await for our turn in the creation of the Dino tooth.
Having fun!
Hands up all those who are having fun!

A secret formula is placed into our cup of sand. We wonder what will be created from that..

Happy birthday boy
After a wait of about 20 minutes , our tooth are ready!

Our tooth creation

This would most probably be the best gift the kids can get . Each of us gets to keep our very own dinosaur tooth.

Our dinosaur goodies
The teachers were also impressed by the efficiency and the content of the party. We understand that they had asked for a quote for future programmes in school. That itself speaks volume of the quality of the party.
