Mad Science is a great place to start
Intructor (Current Employee), Coquitlam, BCJune 5, 2013
Pros: good pay, mileage compensation, great supervisor
Cons: not enough hours per week
Being an instructor at mad science has allowed me to explore my capabilities as an instructor for younger children. I worked independently for each class which last one hour and it gave me a lot of control over the structure of each class. The hardest part of the job is traveling to different schools everyday and having to locate them since they are – more... sometimes outside of my neighbourhood. The most enjoyable part of this job is getting to work with children and making science enjoyable and interesting for them. – less

Supervisor (Former Employee), Winston-Salem, NCNovember 20, 2013
A typical day at work would include me driving to an elementary school, setting up or helping others set up their lessons, calling attendance, ensuring everyone was where they needed to be, taught or supervised other instructors lessons, packed or helped pack up, return materials back to the office.

My co-workers were always a lot of fun and were always – more... excited about their jobs.

The most enjoyable part of the job was teaching children science in a fun manner. Their enthusiasm and excited was always wonderful. – less

Fun work place
Science Presenter (Former Employee), PrestonMay 28, 2013
Pros: flexible with availability to work
Cons: it is just a part time job
Mad Science's moto is to 'Spark Imaginative Learning' and that's exactly what were trained to do. Not only has it been a confidence booster for me but also also have learnt many skills that I am able to take with me no matter where I go next. The best part of the job is that even if your having a terrible day, going to work and presenting in-front of – more... an audience of excited children can boost you back up again. Finally management and co-workers are very approachable and friendly. – less
