I just recently discovered The Kahn Academy, BIll Gates favorite teacher online. Suddenly chemistry and physics doesn't seem as hard as it was for me back in high school. Mr. Salman Kahn is truly a gift to all students everywhere no matter your age.
Now take an organization like Mad Science, whose goal is to "instill a clearer understanding of what science is really about and how it affects the world around us" in a fun, captivating, and interactive way through "cutting-edge programs" and "high energy demonstrations of science experiments." It complements classroom learning and breaks down barriers between a formidable subject and students by linking it to the world around us.
Last Wednesday, Mad Science Philippines took their shows to Robinsons Supermarket for the schoolchildren of the BF Barangay Child Training Center and the Neo Brightside Christian Academy and to the Veritas Parochial School for its elementary and high school students.
Now on its 9th year in the Philippines under Funworks Inc., you may find the organization's Mad Scientists teaching kids and making them ooh and aah almost anywhere in the Philippines almost everyday. They certainly take their mission to "amaze, educate, and inspire kids of all ages," to heart and put on a jolly good show.
Count this kid as a fan.
