|Mad Science® Mad Messages Program for Kids is Jan. 2|
Mad Science® Mad Messages is being offered by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District in conjunction with Mad Science®, a private science education firm. Participants will put their Mad Science® observation skills to use while creating a code wheel, sending and receiving messages via Morse code, using chemical reaction to hide and recover covert messages, and make multicolored sun catchers using only three colors. Participants will also discover fingerprinting to help uncover the mystery of the secret slime formula! Participants should bring a sack lunch and drink.

For the convenience of working parents, children can be dropped off after 8:30 and picked up until 4 p.m. The cost for one six and one-half hour session is $45 per person for Johnson County residents or $50 per person for nonresidents. Preregistration is required and this program usually fills quickly.
