For the best birthday party that your kids will be talking about for years to come, it has to be a science party. Action-packed, hands-on and completely unforgettable, science parties are a unique and inspiring way to celebrate your child’s birthday. If you want something a bit more unique for a birthday celebration, we have the answer.
So, what does it involve? From smoke and bubbles to fizzing potions and magic tricks, plus plenty of interactive experiments where the kids can make their own sweets and slime, our science parties are guaranteed to be enjoyed by girls and boys alike. All of the fun is coordinated by a trained and experienced presenter at your chosen location. And we’ll even provide invitations and certificates for free, for a fantastic souvenir of the day.
All of our presenters are DBS checked and trained in safeguarding, as well as having plenty of experience working with children. Our presenters have worked with the likes of BBC, as well as presented exhibitions in front of thousands of kids, and our experienced presenters are skilled at providing the perfect balance of education and entertainment. So, you can rest assured everyone attending your party will be safe for an event that will be the talk of the playground.
Why Not Get In Touch?
Will it get messy?
A group of kids, making sweets and a lot of slime may seem like it will be messy, but we’ve perfected the art of carrying out experiments with minimal mess. We’ll clean up as we leave!
Can I have the party at my house?
Of course – your home is the ideal place for a science party, but if you want to hold the party at a different event, such as the local village hall or a social club, then we can host it there too without any issues. If you need help deciding where is the most suitable location, get in contact with us and we can help you.
Is it safe?
Absolutely! Our science experts are fully trained and experienced. We’ve hosted countless shows and parties over the years and have even worked with the likes of the BBC, teaching thousands of kids all about the weird and wonderful world of science, so there’s no need to worry.
How long will the party last?
Our basic party package typically lasts around an hour, but we have the option to add on extra experiments such as making bath bombs or their very own sweets, depending on what you think your children and their friends will love most!
What do I need to provide?
Not much! All we need to make your party a success is a table big enough to store everything on, access to water so we can fill up the equipment before we get started, and a standard UK plug socket – plus a group of kids excited to learn about science. We’ll provide everything else for a stress-free party that the kids will love, including certificates for a memento of the day.
What age do the kids need to be?
Science parties appeal to all ages and they’re particularly fun for children aged 5 to 12 years. But we can tailor the party to suit the age of the children coming along to the event too, so everything is age-appropriate for the guests. We’re sure the adults will enjoy the fun of learning science tricks as well.
Is it expensive?
It’s not as expensive as you might think – it works out at as little as £9 per child, based on a party of 20 children, with no added travel fees to worry about. And added extras like party bags are priced at just £3 per child. The main areas we cover are highlighted on this map, but we do cover other counties too. Get in touch with us to see if we cover your location.
How early should I book?
Science parties are a lot of fun and we get booked up, often well in advance, particularly at weekends. So, in order to avoid disappointing the kids, we recommend getting in touch as soon as possible so we can provide you with a quote and availability for your science party.
What’s included in the Science Kit?
Learn all about static electricity with our plasma ball experiment. We’ll teach the kids all about how a mixture of gases, such as helium and neon, create electromagnetic radiation. Children can watch as the electricity moves around the ball, makes a light bulb light up and even give their friends an electric shock – all completely safe, of course!
A fascinating experiment – watch as a powder which won’t catch fire and somehow keeps us dry in water suddenly creates 4ft flames right before your very eyes! Kids of all ages will love this one and will enjoy learning about how the chemical reactions take place to create this spectacle.
Film Canister Rockets
There’s nothing quite like a dose of rocket science to add to the excitement of a party. The kids can make their very own explosions with film canister rockets, shooting them 30ft into the air and learning all about propulsion, force and pressure in the process.
This one is sure to grab the kids’ attention! Using our overpowered air gun, we’ll carry out a range of experiments that will teach them all about air pressure. They’ll become superheroes, have hair like a lion’s mane and even watch their presenter become a monkey!
We also offer the option of extra experiments as well as our standard selection, which include:
After you’ve had fun with our selection of interactive experiments and games, why not add in a dose of extra mind-boggling chemical reactions with our slime making experience?
We’ll offer our expertise and guidance to answer any questions and help the kids explore polymers and molecules, creating the perfect colourful ball of non-toxic, safe-to-handle slime to take home and play with. This is a great way to wind up the party and makes for a lasting memory that the kids will love.
There’s nothing quite like a bit of food technology to boost the fun of a science party. It’s a well-known fact that kids love sweets and they’ll love making them even more!
As part of the sweet making experiment, the children will be able to sample the different ingredients that go into each recipe and will learn about how heat changes the appearance and texture of our food, creating fascinating chemical reactions. And when they’ve made their very own confections, they’ll be able to take them home to enjoy.
Bath Bomb Making
Bath bombs are a fun beauty product that can be found in most shops and supermarkets these days, but have you ever wondered how they’re made? Invite your kids to enter the scientific world of bath products by creating their very own bath bomb to take home with them.
The children will follow step-by-step instructions, with plenty of support from us, to create their own bespoke bath bomb – scented and coloured exactly how they’d like, while learning about how the chemical reactions make it dissolve and fizz in water.
While you can’t take this one home, dry ice is a lot of fun to watch and interact with. We’ll explain CO2 and the complexity of gases, while your kids are wowed by the mystery of the carbon dioxide that lays within dry ice that creates enough pressure to expand balloons and grow bubbles. It can even blow out the candles on the birthday cake!
