Mad Science has a laboratory full of interactive demonstrations and activities to make your child’s next birthday party the best ever!
We come to the party venue, whether that is your house or a hired venue, on the date and time agreed, and bring everything with us that we need although we require a table (any table, garden, plastic etc will do), access to an electric socket and water, and a kettle. We do need to do the party inside. A room or part of a room will do, we just need space for a table for the kit, and room in front for however many children are attending to sit on the floor, not on chairs.
Our basic party runs for approximately 1hr, depending on the children really, and how involved they get in each activity. What we do is very interactive, so we involve the children as volunteers in the demonstrations, and they all get to participate in one activity which might be making bouncing polymer balls, or slime, or mad science putty, and they get to take that home with them in a MAD SCIENCE activity cup. We send an Instructor with all the kit necessary to run the party. If there are more than 20 children, we will need to send an additional Instructor as it is too much for one person to manage more than 20 children alone. We have found that 1-1½ hrs is about the maximum we can keep the children's attention, after that they really want to move about!
We also offer add-ons to the basic party, each of which lasts for about 10 mins. Currently we have a dry ice upgrade, which is very popular. Dry ice involves a bubbling potion demonstration, mad science shower and making opaque bubbles. We also have a candy floss upgrade, where the children get to make and eat a cane of candy floss (great for the teeth!).
Mad Science is about stimulating the kids' interest in science, so we do try to explain the science behind what we do, and try to get the children to contribute to the discussion – but in a party situation the emphasis is on fun and entertainment. The parties really are a lot of fun and the children get very fired up! This is something they have usually not experienced before.
