MadLab has branched out into the southern hemisphere! The complete range of
MadLab kits is now available throughout Australia and New Zealand,
in the following ways:
- Schools, Science Clubs and Birthday Parties
- Looking for something different? With our own special brand of MadLab kits we bring our electronics
workshop to you for a very special learning experience. MadLab is a great event for school enrichment
programs, science clubs, scout/guide groups, and other special interest/opportunity groups.
- Science centres, museums, galleries and historic sites
- The hands-on appeal and sustained focus of a MadLab workshop makes it the perfect complement to
public programs run in educational venues. Run it as a visiting event for a week or a month, as an
extra enticement for regular visitors; or as a regular weekly offering, to allow die-hard MadLab enthusiasts
to come back again and again.
- Special events
- MadLab has been consistently pulling crowds at the Edinburgh International Science Festival for more
than twenty years, so it's no surprise that it now features at science festivals and fun days in Australia,
New Zealand and South Africa. It runs on sessions or a drop-in basis, keeps participants of all ages engrossed
for about an hour, and because there are so many different kits to make, people come back again and again.
- Home or running your own session
- Anyone with their own equipment can order MadLab kits.
Discounts for bulk purchases are available.

MadLab began over twenty years ago in Scotland, when two canny lads set about demystifying electronics.
They designed a range of circuits that absolutely anyone could turn into a functional gadget (such as a
Lie Detector, Insectoid, or Sonar Explorer -- click here for the full list of MadLab
kits) given the appropriate components, a soldering iron and some friendly supervision.
