We have seen other Mad Science shows before and this one to be honest wasn't as good. First, when a show is called Movie Special Effects, one expects to see, well, movie special effects... It started out good with the special effect of the neck stretch but from this point on nothing the scientist showed had anything to do with movies. Yes, she did try to combine the experiment into a story about movies but it was very artificial and non-convincing. 2 of the experiments didn't even work as planned and the excuse that "science doesn't always work the way you want" didn't work even on the kids. Maybe practice better before the show? The highlight for the kids was the "dinosaur booger" and they also liked floating the ping pong ball with the straw, so it wasn’t a complete disappointment.

They gave clear direction and duties, plus they had a lovely layout of treats in the break room for the volunteers to snack on. It was a fun experience. The staff; Tomika, Angela, and all the rest were really great and supportive.

when we got there, no one was organizing the event. We waited for 20 minutes and called, librarian finally came and told us that this event wasn't on their calendar. Then someone substituted. We had three families and four children, a little bit disappointing.
