Science Parties

Dr K's Science Birthday Parties

Want an exciting Birthday Party that will be the envy of all your friends? Then try one of Dr K's Science Birthday Parties.

My party philosophy is to have every child as involved as possible with everyone getting hands-on with all the experiments. I will of course wear my lab coat and science glasses to get the proper science look!  Click on the links to have a look at some photos of Science Parties I have done and read my testimonials too.

Science Parties last between 1½ to 2½ hours depending on the age of the children. They run most smoothly when I have a bit of time between each experiment (present opening, eating, party games etc. supervised by another adult) to set up the next experiment.

I normally do three hands-on experiments at each party, some of which you can take home the results. The most popular party experiments are Big Bubbles, Berocca Rockets, Volcanoes, Fake Snow, Chromatography and Blue Goo. I have a range of other experiments too if you want a particular experiment or theme. I can also do a ‘CSI-whodunit’ for children 13 years and up or a spectacular Dry Ice party for children 8 years and up (additional cost for the dry ice). Furthermore I have several big air powered rocket launchers if you have somewhere large enough for safe launching, they go over 10 meters! Some experiment are definitely outside ones (big bubble and rockets) so I always bring wet weather alternatives.

The cost is $25 per child comprising of your choice of three exciting hands-on experiments, a customised invitation (like this one) and a party bag; which includes a lab coat design bag with some lollies and one of my Science Kits. The birthday child can chose which kit they want for each party goer or I can choose appropriate kits. There is an alternative at $20 per child without the invite or party bag. Minimum 12 children and if you plan to invite 20+ party goers I will bring another adult to help me.

Please E-mail me at to arrange your party. Please include your preferred date, address and phone number so I can phone you about your party needs. I can do Science Parties in the following areas Kapiti Coast, Porirua, Wellington, Lower Hutt and Upper Hutt.  there are deals for parties on the Kapiti Coast as it is less travel. Other locations may be accommodated but will incur travel expenses.
