    Job Summary

    At Mad Science we are having a BLAST! We pay you to have fun! Build and fly rockets, demonstrate lasers, explore the states of matter using dry ice, and help children create slime and other polymers. You will inspire the next generation of scientists through our innovative activities that show kids what science is really all about.

    As a Mad Scientist you will lead students through an inquiry-based discovery method involving instructor demonstrations, hands-on activities and amazing take-home projects that will illustrate how science affects the world around us. Mad Science is the world's leading provider of fun science programs for elementary-aged children.

    We are currently looking for energetic individuals to join our growing team to conduct exciting science programs or teach chess during after-school hours. You do NOT need to be a certified teacher, nor do you need to be a science major or chess champion.

    Employee compensation (not private contractor stipends) ranges from $25-$35 per class depending on experience, with raises twice per year, plus bonuses for perfect attendance and referrals.


    Teaching a one-hour after-school science or chess enrichment program using a pre-set curriculum.

    Each session is a high-energy, part entertainment, part education, hands-on class that meets for one-hour each week for 3-8 weeks.

    Enjoy teaching young children the art of science or chess!


    Some experience working with groups of elementary age (4-12) children (volunteer experience counts!)

    Must be available at least two weekdays after 2 pm

    Must have a reliable car

    All employees will have criminal background checks

    Minimum of high school diploma. Degrees and/or graduate degrees a plus.

    Have a fun & outgoing personality

    We train you in the curriculum (training is paid), and provide all materials. Mad Science classes follow the school calendar and are presented year round. Summer Camps take place from June through August. This is part-time and rewarding work if it fits with your schedule and lifestyle.
