Birthday Parties

Happy children displaying their crafts at a Science Centre Birthday Party.

Celebrate your child’s birthday with a private party and amazing hands-on science activities

We look forward to resuming our birthday parties with new safety protocols (What to Expect). Please note that not all party types will be available. Sign up for our eNews to keep updated on what’s new at the Science Centre.

Celebrate your next birthday at the Science Centre! Our package includes a two-hour exclusive experience with themed hands-on science-based activities facilitated by dedicated party hosts and a pizza lunch. Leave the work to us—all you need to do is choose the theme. The fun isn’t over when the party ends—you and your guests are invited to spend the rest of the day at the Science Centre.

Types of Parties

Imagination Playground™: Ages 4–7

Experiment, play and create with us and the Imagination Playground block system. Our party staff will lead and guide your young guests through exploring and building their very own engineering marvel—together!

Theme Parties: Ages 5–9

BIOLOGY—Journey through the digestive system and solve the Poo-Patrator Mystery using clues left in animal scat. Do you have the stomach for this party?

CHEMISTRY—Experience cool physical and chemical reactions. Mix concoctions of slime (a polymer) and Oobleck (a non-Newtonian fluid).

MAGIC—Discover the chemistry and physics of magic tricks. Play with gravity to make an orb levitate and create a balancing stick and amaze your party guests along the way.

SPACE—Explore the solar system and space travel with us. Become an astronaut trainee and investigate the laws of gravity by designing, building and testing a planetary lander.

Engineering: Ages 10–12

Use engineering principles, recycled materials and your imagination to find the solution to a real-life problem, then build and test your very own personalized robot.
