EX­PLO­SIONS, rock­ets and goo are among the ev­ery­day prod­ucts used by one Coven­try and War­wick­shire or­gan­i­sa­tion hop­ing to grab the at­ten­tion of judges at our pres­ti­gious Busi­ness Awards.

Mad Sci­ence aims to make sci­ence fun and accessible for chil­dren and fam­i­lies of­fer­ing af­ter-school pro­grammes, hol­i­day clubs, in-class work­shops and birth­day par­ties.

It has been nom­i­nated for THREE cat­e­gories at the Coven­try Tele­graph Busi­ness Awards – the Not-for-Profit Award, which recog­nises those or­gan­i­sa­tions who make a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to the lo­cal com­mu­nity; Con­tri­bu­tion to the Com­mu­nity Award, for the or­gan­i­sa­tion which demon­strates ded­i­ca­tion to cor­po­rate, so­cial and eth- ical re­spon­si­bil­ity; and Ex­cel­lence in Sci­ence & Tech­nol­ogy Award, recog­nis­ing sci­en­tific ad­vance­ment and in­no­va­tion.

Launched in the West Mid­lands in 2006, Mad Sci­ence and has been oper­at­ing world­wide for 30 years.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion has told how it has con­tin­ued to in­vest in re­search and de­vel­op­ment to en­sure they are at the fore­front of their in­dus­try.

By cre­at­ing hands-on sci­ence pro­grammes they hope to in­spire chil­dren to pur­sue STEM (sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy, en­gi­neer­ing and math­e­mat­ics) ca­reers in the fu­ture.

Mad Sci­ence Re­gional Man­ager Jas­mine Han­lon said: “We are very ex­cited to be nom­i­nated for three cat­e­gories at Coven­try Tele­graph Busi­ness Awards.
