Science party for just a couple of friends

April 2007

My daughter would like a small science party for her birthday- with just a couple friends. So, it wouldn't make sense to have it lawrence Hall of Science. Does anyone know a person who could do some fun experiments with the girls or give a special tour of anyplace having to do with science for a small group? Thanks Linda

You can do it yourself. We have done 2 great home science parties for 7 and 9 year olds using kits from Steve Spangler Science. You can shop via the Internet. One was a Hermione's Potion Party- they have a kit for about $15 per person that is a test tube rack with 5 experiments each in a tube. (I have seen that particular kit at Target once, too.) For that price they end up with things to take home they've made and you don't need goody bags. You also don't need any fancy facilitator- the kits are easy to understand with very interesting, colorful, fun results. If it's this summer, you can steal my theme- the last Harry Potter movie is coming up! Hermione's mom
For your daughter's science party, call MadScience- their office is in Walnut Creek, but they do birthday parties and afterschool programs all over the east bay. Go Science!
What about a trip to the Exploratorium. They frequently have demos like the cow's eye disection and maybe you could arrange for something like that while you're there.
