First Ever Science Social Network for Kids Launched

The Mad Science Group has launched the Mad Science Kids Club powered by Everloop, becoming the first-ever science social network platform created specifically for kids.

Being a parent of 2 elementary school kids that are also well versed in technology – I love this !

A “virtual science playground,” the Mad Science Kids Club offers children a unique science-based platform for connecting, exploring and learning with peers online through the company’s signature science enrichment programs.

Mad Science Kids Club offers applications including:

  • Lab Rat: A panel of experts answers kids’ real science questions
  • Science Zone: Offers kids and parents fun, do-at-home science experiments
  • Brain Busters: Brain teasers, puzzles, and optical illusions
  • Around the Word: An online kids’ book club

In addition, the Mad Science Kids Club gives kids a rich array of social media features including real-time communications: Instant Messaging; email; Voice over Internet Protocol, a Skype-like application for kids; a friend post stream where kids can share their favorite content including videos, music, and photos; a robust game arcade and much more.

“We are so thrilled to launch the Mad Science Kids Club, furthering our mission to spark children’s imagination and provide them with a tangible, fun and highly interactive way to extend their experience with science outside of the classroom,” said Kathy Muloin, President of The Mad Science Group. “We are pleased to partner with Everloop in this effort – a full-featured, expressive platform known for its expertise in online safety – so we can offer parents a fun, and safe, social medium for their children that also promotes science enrichment.”

The Mad Science Kids Club is powered by Everloop’s COPPA-compliant Private Label solution, which provides partners with fun features designed for kids and an unprecedented level of privacy protection. Parents can also monitor their child’s online activities through the parental control dashboard.

“The Mad Science Kids Club is the perfect partner for Everloop, as it joins two of the most important features parents seek in a social platform for kids: educational value and safety,” said Everloop CEO, Hilary DeCesare. “We are excited to be on board with Mad Science and contribute to creating a secure and interactive environment for this revolutionary science platform.”
