Does STAAR have you calling out SOS?
Well look no further!
We are the #1 source for STAAR enrichment, remediation and test program for your 3rd through 8th graders for Science. For over a decade we have helped Elementary and Middle schools with TAKS (now STAAR). We have before /after data to prove it!
Schools use us during the SPRING term to get 5th and 8th graders polished-up for the Science test.

I get the gist, but how does the Systems of STAAR work?
The SOS is a series of one-hour workshops that utilize 'hands-on' learning workshops to experience the TEKS principles covered in STAAR testing. In each workshop, experiments and demonstrations are used to help students reinforce the objectives and concepts taught by the teacher covering earth science, life science and physical science.
How thorough is the coverage in the Systems of STAAR?
Mad Science offers the flexibility for you to be as in-depth as you want to be. These hands-on workshops can be a combination of all science (earth, physical, life) or some depending on where your students’ TEKS gaps are as related to the concepts addressed on our STAAR classes. It includes on-site delivery, DPS background checked Mad Scientists and our Pre and Post package.
Does the Systems of STAAR replace classroom instruction?
No! WE DO NOT REPLACE YOUR TEACHERS! Our role is to help them extend and enhance their impact in their class room by providing them state-of-the-art technology equipment to drive home the TEKS Science concepts they cover in their classes. Think of us a 'mobile science lab' for your science teacher!
Why should we use the Systems of STAAR in our school?
Anyone who has spent more than five minutes with children in Elementary and Middle schools knows how long their attention spans are… Get the picture? Programs that use different methods of teaching get through to students differently; we use visual, tactile, and auditory teaching methods in our workshops. With the Systems of STAAR, students experience the TEKS Science objectives, not just hear about them.
What if we can’t spare the time?
We will work with your needs! Ideally, the sessions should be conducted during class time so that all students have the opportunity to be involved; the different classes just rotate through until we have seen the entire grade level. However, we can conduct after school sessions, schedule individual objective workshops, or customize other programs. Just ask!
