Birthday parties are back at Explorit

From page A4 | January 24, 2014 |

It’ll be a whole year of happy birthdays and un-birthdays for everyone as Explorit brings back its popular birthday party programs. Celebrate your special day by spending a delightful weekend morning with your best buddies at Explorit this year!

Whether you’re looking for a fun space to host your own party or a dynamic presentation with an Explorit educator, we’ve got something for everybody. Our super birthday parties feature an hour of hands-on science fun led by an Explorit educator on one of six exciting topics.

Guests will become real party animals with Slither, Leap and Hop while learning about the features and adaptations of different animals. A few special insect and reptile guests also will stop by for a visit.

Or for a party that’s out of this world, try Starry Science where partiers will study constellations, build telescopes and explore worlds beyond our own. Come find out what an astronaut eats for breakfast!

Get a blast from the past with Fascinating Fossils. Follow in the footsteps of dinosaurs and see what your team of paleontologists can unearth.

Magical Chem-Mysteries will dazzle you with the wonders of science! That egg can’t fit into that bottle — or can it? That cabbage juice is purple — or is it? Don’t let your senses deceive you, but be prepared to say “Wow!”

Don a hard hat and enter the Construction Zone where there’s no limit to what you can build. How strong is a sheet of newspaper? Can you build a whole building with just paper?

And Scientastic Sleuthing will have you investigating a crime scene, collecting clues and using science to solve a mystery. Analyze fingerprints and writing samples, test the ink and draw logical conclusions.

In addition, each super birthday party includes free museum admission for each party guest, an additional hour at Explorit for your own party activities, an Explorit T-shirt for the birthday child and an unforgettable birthday experience. Birthday parties are available weekend mornings. Basic parties include use of Explorit facilities for your own 90-minute event.

Each party is designed for 10 guests, and can accommodate up to 15. Discount pricing is available for Explorit members. Call Explorit at 530-756-0191 for more information or to book your party.
