    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. We are hiring in-class and after school enrichment instructors, birthday party performers, and show performers! You do NOT need to be a certified teacher, nor do you need to be a science major.


    Facilitating a one-hour after-school science 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 6, 8, or 10 weeks.

    Enjoy teaching young children the fascinating wonders of science!

    Birthday party performers must be dynamic and engaging to perform and instruct children in an entertaining environment.

    Show performers must be high energy, dynamic and animated and able to perform in front of large groups of children and adults!


    Some experience working with groups of elementary age (4-12) children (such as CCD instructor or camp counselor).

    Must be available at least three weekdays or weekends for birthday parties.

    Must have a reliable car.

    All employees will be fingerprinted for criminal background checks(required).

    Have a fun & outgoing personality.

    Must live in the Bay Area!

    We train you in the curriculum, and provide all materials. Mad Science classes follow the school calendar and are presented year round. This is part-time and rewarding work if it fits with your schedule and lifestyle.
