MAD Scientist Fun Day

Every year we celebrate the end of the year with a special educational field trip to somewhere.   Usually Dinosaur World or Mosi Museum.  However, this year with all of the budget cuts and additional bus fare costs we had to cancel that super fun trip.  My fabulous K team and I refused to let this year end without some kind of FUN end of the year "trip".  So we searched around for alternatives.  Finally, (the wonderful) Ms. Baker found a company called Mad Scientists. This group of scientists actually come to YOUR school and completes hands-on science experiments with the kiddos. Plus, the kiddos get to take most of the experiments home!!!! NO bus money to collect and it was just about $5 a child for this FABULOUS group to come.  I don't know about you but I love a good deal! It was amazing and the kiddos LOVED every minute of it.  Here are some photos and a short clip (at the end) of some of the great stuff they do with the students.
