Our Story

Mad Science was founded in 1985 in Montreal, Canada, by two brothers, Ariel and Ron Shlien. Their hobby of conducting spectacular science experiments, to the amazement of the children in their neighborhood, grew from a passion into a thriving business. Mad Science is now a global enrichment company that brings the love of science in a unique, hands-on way to millions of children every year!

Mad Science of St. Louis got its start in October of 1998. Gavin Kark and Alan Simon, started their local Mad Science business in the Kark basement and over the past 25 years have grown to a much larger office space in University City, MO. Beginning with less than 10 employees Mad Science of St. Louis now employs over 30 instructors and office personnel and operates throughout Eastern Missouri and Illinois.
