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!

Long Island STEAM Group is an organization encompassing several educational and entertaining programs for pre-k and elementary school children. We are the provider of Mad Science, Imagine Arts Academy, Schoolhouse Chess, and Brixology, and have been bringing programs to the children of Long Island for over 16 years. We take pride in merging education with entertainment with engaging presentations for children when they are most receptive to learning. Having fun while learning is evident throughout every assembly, workshop, birthday party, summer camp, and after-school enrichment program we offer.
