We offer five different science activities for all ages, including:

Polymer Putty (New & Improved!)

Learn how to make slime! It is slimy, stretchy, and colorful. This slime is made out of household ingredients. Each guest will get his or her own piece of the goo during the party, and instructions to make more at home.

Discovering Dinosaurs

How do we know what dinosaurs looked like? Learn how scientists found out as you see, touch, and explore real fossils! Take home your own creation built on a dinosaur skeleton and a temporary dinosaur tattoo.

Building Butterflies

At this colorful party, children will experience capillary action while creating their own butterfly. Your child’s watercolor coffee filter will become the wings of a beautiful butterfly. Play a game to see how a caterpillar becomes a butterfly, and take home a butterfly temporary tattoo.

Constellation Cups

To the stars and beyond! Your child and party guests will be seeing stars with this activity. Each child will learn about different constellations, and create his or her own constellation to take home.

Animal Adaptations

Explore different animals from around the world. What animals are colorful? What does their skin feel like? How big are their bones? Then create your own wild beast. What kind of animal will you imagine?
