by Sarah the Scientist.
Want an exciting Birthday Party that will be the envy of all your friends? Then try a Sarah the Scientist Science Birthday Party. I am base on the beautiful Kāpiti Coast, just outside Wellington and mainly cover the Greater Wellington area and Horowhenua.
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 to get the proper science look! You can hire child sized lab coats for the participants. Check out the gallery below.
A science party normally take two to two and a half hours. In that time Sarah the Scientist will do three hands-on experiments with the party goers. The most popular experiments for are Fake Snow, Slime (the colour is chosen by the birthday child) and Mini Rockets. With Fake Snow and Slime everyone takes home what they make. For other party experiments click here.
The Bottle Rocket Launcher can be done as a free extra if you have a safe place for a launch. The bottle rocket goes the length of a tennis court!
In between the experiments Sarah needs some time to clean up and reset for the next experiment, normally
parents do present opening, a party game or eating. Sarah is there to make your life easier so there is no rush with these activities. She will wait until the children have finished their activity before starting the next experiment.
Payment options and participant minimum
$25 per head option which includes the party plus personalised invitations and party bags with Dr K’s Mind-blowing Milk experiment kit (other Dr K Science Kits by negotiation) and some science lollies.
