Carmelo the Science Fellow Birthday Parties


Carmelo the Science Fellow birthday parties are an amazing experience for all that attend. For the first part of the party, children get to visit with animals (like the blue-tongued skink, corn snakes, gerbils, turtles, bearded dragons, geckos, and hamsters) and learn about the fascinating world of bio-diversity. Then comes the hands-on experiment part of the party. Children may make glow-in-the-dark silly putty, fake snow, paper rockets, ten-foot slime worms, and more.

After an hour and a half of science fun, it’s time to clean up and head to the back room for food and cake. Parents provide food/snacks, drinks, and utensils. If you would like, staff can place a pizza order for you (you are then responsible for paying when the delivery arrives).
