10 mins after the party start time (to allow everyone time to arrive) The fun begins with a mixture of demonstrations and hands on experiments, all of which involve the children and quite often the adults. This takes between 60/75 mins
We then stop for a break and some much anticipated party food.
After the children have eaten usually 20/30 minutes, we then finish with an extra ‘WOW’ experiment which usually takes about 15 mins and takes place outside if the weather conditions and space allow although there will be an indoor alternative if not.
Finally for the last 10 mins or so they can play with their science experiments until they are picked up.
There is no need for you to provide any extra entertainment unless you wish to.
This is only a suggestion and can be adapted to any format or theme
Any venue can be mobile science lab. We just need room for a table (or we can use yours) and space for the children to sit. If we have access to an outdoor area, we can include some of our messier experiments or even a rocket.
We are Plymouth based. Parties outside of the Plymouth area will be considered however it will incur an additional fee depending on distance and the extra time needed.
A table for the experiments (or we can bring our own) A place to put it and for the children to sit/stand
Yes, they are safe. All the experiments we do are fun, safe and age appropriate.
The experiments involve at least 6 different science concepts that work a bit like magic and as such rely on the element of surprise so we don’t like to give too much away and which is why there are no photos of the parties themselves.
About 10/15 minutes before the start time.
For a two hour party we charge £100 for up to 12 children and £8 a head thereafter .
Simply give us a call or email us a few details about what you want for the party. We’re happy to hold your booking for a few days while you decide on a venue. We do ask for a £50 deposit to secure the booking You will get a confirmation from us to say that everything is booked in.

From the invitations to the experiments to the party bags at the end, we can do it all! When you book a party, we will email you free Science Party invitations for you to print at home. No party is complete without party bags and we are happy to provide them if required. Our bags are science themed and appeal to both boys and girls. The exact contents vary depending on the theme of the party and the ages of the children. We’ll bring them along to the party and they will be left open, so you can add the cake. Party bags are priced at £3 each .
Girls and boys are equally fascinated by our experiments, most of our parties tend to be mixed groups. The ideal age range is 5 – 12, We will try to tailor the presentation to suit the age of the audience.
Yes, of course. We are happy to accept children of all abilities to our parties. Let us know of any special requirements and we will work with you to ensure a successful party that is accessible to everyone.
Yes, In fact, we ask that at least one adult is present at all times as we are unable to take overall care and responsibility for the childre
We can cater for all sized groups, having less than 12 doesn’t mean less value it means more time to do more experiments and works really well in home venues.
