Who Is The Crazy Scientist?

(Science Teacher, Presenter, Entertainer, Educator, Toy Creator and all round….. BIG KID!)

The founder of The Crazy Scientist is a Science Teacher with a difference! His 19 years in education coupled with his passion to make learning science a Magical experience that you will NEVER forget is what sets The Crazy Scientist apart from the rest.

Although he earned his credentials formally as a Science Teacher, Learning Theory presenter at the Focus On Learning Conference, Science facilitator at Taronga Zoo, Bicentennial Educational Centre and more, he is a BIG kid at heart. His unique and infectious teaching methods have enthused children and adults across Sydney as he teaches them how to learn science while  shooting monkeys across the room, cooking up the most disgusting batch of vomit slime or placing kids inside giant bubbles.

The original Crazy Scientist (known by his scientific name: Darin Carr) may be unconventional in his teaching methods, but that is what makes the workshops and experiences so much FUN, memorable and…… Magical.

Darin’s formal training in current learning methodologies, Gifted and Talented qualifications coupled with his 19yrs teaching across K-12 and beyond have enabled him to design unique toys and learning devices that engage children into learning and ignite their ‘inner fire’ to explore their learning into the future. He really knows how to make common experiences into unforgettable learning opportunities that are just magical!

Darin’s motto is basic. Make learning FUN, BIG and Magical!


Despite being a crazy and energetic scientist, The Crazy Scientist can not break the laws of physics and be in TWO places at once.

We have solved this problem by going to the Looney Lab and cooking up the perfect mix of radioactive chemicals, lizard tales and a touch of pepper in our chemical cauldron that was held in the light of the moon during a planetary alignment. The result producing a great team of ‘Crazy Scientists’ who burst out of test tubes with enthusiasm, experience and formal training to ensure The Crazy Scientist experience is just as Magical for your children.

Why wait? If you want the BEST theatrical experience that makes learning FUN, memorable with a touch of Magic, then call us to see how we can make your scientific dreams come true.
