Celebrate with Science
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
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!
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
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
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!
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.
Mesozoic Meet & Greet – $50
A team member in an inflatable dinosaur costume will visit your party for extra fun! Meet and take your own photos with our prehistoric partygoer during this 15 minute encounter.
Saturday & Sunday: 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., or 1:30 – 3:30 p.m.
