Rainbow Flames: You might think you know what fire looks like but you could be surprised! Flames can be all different colors of the rainbow and we invite you to come see it for yourself! You and your guests will burn different mystery powders to make different colored flames. Can you guess what each powder is? We’ll explain the “why” behind each one while you enjoy the view!
It’s Slime! Learn the science of slime and get your hands dirty in this ooey-gooey addition to your birthday party! Choose from five different types of slime, including an edible slime, and impress your friends with your new science know-how! After your party take home your slime and your knowledge of how slime works!
Make the ball bounce! Can you make the bounciest of all bouncy balls?! Your budding chemist can experiment with different ingredients to try and make the best bouncy ball you can! Learn how bouncy balls work, what they’re made of, and the science behind their ingredients in this bouncy birthday party addition!
