    Job Summary:

    Passionate About Science? At Mad Science, we are having a BLAST! We pay you to have fun! You will inspire the next generation of scientists through our innovative activities that show kids what science is really about.

    Mad Science is the world's leading provider of fun science programs for elementary-aged children.

    As a Mad Scientist, you will lead students through hands-on activities, and amazing take-home projects that will illustrate how science affects the world around us.

    Join us to help kids have fun, empowering experiences with science!

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


    Facilitate one-hour, after-school science enrichment programs using pre-set curriculum.

    Run each class as a high-energy, hands-on experience—a hybrid of entertainment, education, and fun.

    Commit to the entire Fall session at whichever school(s) you’re assigned and agree to; each session meets on the same day each week for one-hour and sessions typically run 8-10 weeks.

    Enjoy teaching young children the art of science!


    Some experience working with groups of elementary-aged (4-12) children.

    Excellent verbal communication skills.

    Must have a reliable vehicle. Driving is required as you work at different schools each work day and have equipment to carry.

    A negative TB Test and an FBI/DOJ Live-scan is required (can complete during orientation).

    Have a fun & outgoing personality.

    Able to learn independently and also proactively ask questions as needed.

    Successful candidates are also:

    Responsible - able to conduct programs safely and efficiently.

    Reliable - always on time, always prepared.

    Adaptable - able to adjust to every environment and group type.

    Professional - comfortable dealing with everyone from parents to principals.

    Flexible - able to function in a business where schedules and workloads are at the mercy of the customer.

    We train you in the curriculum and provide all materials. Mad Science classes follow the school calendar and are presented year-round.
