Walder Science Center

Birthday Parties

Give your next child’s party an exciting educational twist with a unique venue at Walder Science! Our birthday party packages range from Nursery and Kindergarten up to grade 6!

Schedule: The hands-on portion of the party lasts for about 40 minutes, where we guide the children through numerous experiments and activities!

Topic: The party starts off with a demonstration on the difference between science and magic, followed by hands-on experiments in physics (air pressure and temperature) and chemistry (acids/bases and polymers), and concluding with each participant making their own slime to take home in a Walder Science party bag!  The activities are modified based on the age level.

Other Party Components: For the rest of the party, families are welcome to use one of our available activity rooms. This can be for other activities/games that you want have with your group, and/or to serve food (such as pizza and cake) and drinks. Depending on the schedule, the room can also be decorated in advance. We do not provide anything for this portion of the party. Parents are responsible for clean up, or they can pay an additional $50 cleaning fee.

Pricing: The cost is only $150 for up to 10 kids, or $200 for 11-20 kids.
