Party descriptions

The recommended ages for each party are indicated in square brackets after the title of the party. We recommend that you select a party based on the age of the birthday child, however, should you wish to choose an alternate party, you may do so subject to availability.

LITTLE TOP [Pre-School Only:  Ages 3 - 4]
The Mad Scientist will get the children excited about the circus. The children will bounce clown toys on a mini trampoline as they learn about elastic forces. They will learn that the clowns can also do somersaults because of the change in their center of gravity. The children will then try tight rope walking, just like the clowns, by walking along a thick rope on the ground.
Please note that this birthday party is 30-45 minutes in duration and that the birthday child will receive a Mad Science certificate.
Take-home choice:  Spell-E-Phant Pencil or a Circus Stencil.

AIR BLAST [Ages 5 - 7]
The children will be amazed as they learn about the properties of air and air pressure. They will discover the basics of polymers and polymer chemistry, experiment with fluids and vortex generators and be introduced to piezo-electricity. We will dazzle the kids with a demonstration of phosphorescence. Weather permitting, this party may take place outdoors.
Suggested make-and-take-home activity:  Mad Science Putty.

MAD ABOUT BLUE [Ages 8 - 10]
We will electrify the children with excitement as they watch our Tesla Coil demonstrations and learn about lightning, electricity and conductivity. We will have the children’s undivided attention as we separate out the colours that are hidden in white light and teach them the difference between white light and UV light.
Suggested make-and-take-home activity:  Mad Science Slime.

REACTIONS IN ACTION [Ages 10 - 12]
Children will be amazed by awesome chemistry and chemical reactions. We will highlight the difference between chemiluminescence and bioluminescence, demonstrate combustion and discover some of the properties of hydrophobic sand. The children will learn about electricity as they are introduced to our plasma ball.
Suggested make-and-take-home activity:  Mad Science Super Science Ball.

FIZZY PHYSICS [Ages 5 - 12] Best conducted outdoors!
Physical and chemical reactions are a gas in this party! The children will be introduced to air and air pressure, the process of carbonation and sublimation. We will cap off the party by using air pressure and water to launch soda bottle rockets into the sky! This party works best outdoors during the warmer months as the children will get wet.
Suggested make-and-take-home activity: Mad Science Popper Rocket.

WIZARD PARTY [Ages 5 - 12]
Discover the wizardly arts as we add a "magical" twist to our science party! Children will learn about chemistry, density, heat, piezo-electricity, black lights that emit artificial UV light and dry ice. This party is subject to an additional fee to cover the dry ice upgrade.
Suggested make-and-take-home activity:  Glow-in-the dark Mad Science Slime.

PIRATE PARTY [Ages 5 - 12]
Take your birthday to the high seas and learn about the science behind sailing, navigation and pirate life. Find out why pirates really wear the eye patch (you'll be surprised!). Learn about celestial navigation and ship propulsion.
Suggested make-and-take-home activity:  Mad Science wave motion modulator.

FAIRY TALE PARTY [Ages 5 - 8]
Your birthday prince or princess will save the day and defeat the "dragon" using science! A storyline party, the royal birthday child and guests will conduct different experiments to make things right again in the kingdom!
Suggested make-and-take-home activity:  Mad Science Sun Beads.

CRAZY CRIME LAB PARTY [Ages 6 - 8]

We offer a number of party options that will stretch your birthday star’s smile to the max and further amaze your guests:

  • Cotton Candy Making: Tasty Science! See how heat changes sugar from crystals to floss. Cotton Candy for all of the kids at the party!
  • Rocket Launch: Watch as the Mad Scientist launches a model rocket that leaves the launch pad at an initial speed of over 300 km/h and that can reach heights of 100 m! If we are able to recover the rocket, the birthday child gets to keep it!  Subject to a 9 km airport radius restriction (call for details).
  • Van de Graaf Demonstration:  Have a hair-raising experience while learning about static electricity!
  • Hovercraft Ride:  Take a spin on the Mad Science model hovercraft and experience first hand how air pressure makes it work!
