Celebrate with Science

Now booking for September & October 2021!

In response to COVID-19, face coverings are required for ALL guests while indoors. Guests will be seated and social distanced while eating or drinking.

Give your child a birthday celebration they’ll remember for years to come, filled with science and fun! Choose from various party themes.

Year-Round Party Themes

Diggin’ Dinosaurs

Ages 3-7
Party participants become young paleontologists and examine the bones, horns and claws of some of their favorite dinosaurs. Party-goers will don field hats and head up to our Rethink Extinct science studio, where they’ll learn more about our Collections, and dig in their own personal dig pit!

Bubble Blast

Ages 3-7
Go beyond the bubble basics! With the help of a BMS “Bubble-ologist,” you and your guests will be creating, painting with and even standing in bubbles.

Super Scientist’s Lab

Ages 6-12
Intrigued by messy fun and crazy concoctions? Let’s throw on lab coats and goggles and experiment with static electricity, chemical reactions and more!

Science Below Zero

Ages 6-12
This is the “coolest” party ever! Experience the chilling effects of liquid nitrogen and watch as it makes mist shoot high into the air, balloons “magically” shrink, rubber balls shatter, and much more!

SciArt

Ages 8-12
Creativity and scientific thinking go hand in hand as your party will learn science through art activities. We will explore the science behind iridescence, paint using force and motion, and experiment with colorful chemical reactions.
