Is your child is more likely to cite Neil Degrasse Tyson as a hero rather than Batman or Superman? Does he love the Magic School Bus books or prefer Sid the Science Kid during her screen time? Do you have a board on Pinterest dedicated to at home science projects, causing you to run out of things like food coloring way too often? If you answered yes to two or more of these, then you should throw your little one a science-themed birthday party on his or her big day. Luckily, there are tons of options for you to create a hands-on, educational party that your child will love. Start with NYC’s top science-themed birthday party resources.

Where Science and Technology Meet

Why it’s a Great Experiment: For the “Video Gamer” package, children are treated to a private PS4 gaming session in a state-of-the-art High Definition Theater equipped with a 4K projector and 21-foot screen. In the “Animator” package, your child will collaborate with their birthday guests to produce their very own stop-motion animated short film.

The Scientific Method: Birthday parties are designed especially for children at a minimum second grade learning level. Dates are subject to availability and prices may be adjusted based on the number of guests. Reservations should be made at least six weeks in advance, and a 50% deposit is required to secure your reservation.

Cost: Parities here are certainly a splurge! They range from $2,250 to $4,000.
