By age eight, John Stuart Mill had learned Latin and Greek, and had written a political treatise barring those with no knowledge of Latin or Greek from his tree house. Enliven your child's mind with today's Groupon: for $10, you get admission for one child to a one-hour science workshop at Mad Science (a $20 value), with locations in Northampton and East Longmeadow. Choose between the following options:

  • A Wiggly Worms and Animal Friends workshop for preschoolers ages 3–5 on Saturday, May 21 from 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m., with the possible addition of a session from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. based on demand. This option is for the Northampton location.

Mad Science's beaker-wielding instructors use eye-popping demonstrations to instill academic yearning in scores of young pupils. In the first half of the Wiggly Worms and Animal Friends workshop, each musketeer gets her or his own personal worm to offer insight into the subterranean lifestyle. Workshops proceed by conducting high-pitched choruses of "The Worm Song." The second half of the session teaches the basic biology of various species through the use of puppets, pelts, and scale models whose pun-filled monikers incite cheap reptilian chuckles.

For slightly older students, the afternoon Slime Time class introduces elementary-age learners to the gooey world of polymer science. In a fun-filled hour, ectoplasmic pupils will learn about the basic chemical compounds behind bendy, stretchy polymers before concocting goopy portions of inedible magic muffins. Graduates depart with souvenirs of their own slimy creations.
