Birthday Party Activities
We have birthday parties down to a science!
3, 2, 1 …. BLAST OFF! Design and launch your own paper rocket. Using just the power of air pressure, you’ll be amazed at just how high they go!
Best for ages 6 and up. This activity takes place outdoors; please select one of our other parties as an alternative in case of inclement weather.
DNA is the code in every living cell that leads to life as we know it. In this party, you’ll attempt to extract DNA from fruits, vegetables, or even your own cells! Guests will get their very own sample of DNA to take home.
Best for ages 7 and older.
Have some soapy science fun with our Bubbles Galore party! Choose from a variety of bubble activities, including bubble art, soapy snakes, and geometric bubbles. Every Bubbles Galore party ends with a demonstration of super-cool, super-spooky dry ice smoke bubbles!
Great for all ages. This party can get messy!
Fizz, bubble, ooze, or pop? Select from an array of amazing mind-boggling experiments that explore physics and chemistry concepts. Create instant polymer worms, glowing slime, soda-pop geysers, elephant toothpaste, and more.
