Birthdays at Pacific Science Center
If someone in your life has a birthday coming up, we have just what you need!
Every Saturday and Sunday, Pacific Science Center hosts a variety of parties for kids of all ages. The celebration starts in one of the private birthday party rooms located in the Seattle Rotary Discovery Labs. We provide everything; you just come and have fun! Guests arrive in a festive decorated environment the moment they walk in the door, even the cake and activities are coordinated to match your chosen theme. Parents can relax and enjoy the party - leave the entertaining to us!
Experienced Pacific Science Center staff will dazzle your guests with a Super Science Show featuring a 40-minute interactive science activity and a 20-minute Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream demonstration that creates ice cream you can really eat. Then enjoy the second hour with your guests inside the party room. When the party is over, everyone can enjoy the rest of the day exploring Pacific Science Center's exhibits.
Choose from the following themes:
Spy Academy - Investigate the undercover world of espionage when you receive a secret mission from Pacific Science Center Headquarters. Create an agent identity, assemble a message decoder and use your powers of deduction to decipher the code. Use spy techniques and tools including UV light and chemical reactions to reveal secret clues hidden in plain sight. Once you complete the mission, you will earn your badge in covert communications and celebrate with a scoop of liquid nitrogen ice cream!
Spy Academy does not include admission to SPY: The Secret World of Espionage. Please inquire about adding exhibit admission to your birthday party package.
Spa Lab - Discover how to make every day at home a spa experience with our new Pacific Science Center Spa and Science Lab. Create your favorite bath products while investigating the chemical reactions that make them fizz, froth, and foam. Stir up a standout lip balm and concoct a scented bath fizz using household everyday ingredients you have at home. Complete your special day with cool and creamy Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream and a trip to Professor Wellbody's Academy of Health & Wellness exhibit to discover more healthy relaxation techniques.
Weird Science - Marvel as our expert science demonstrator gives you a private window into the world of physical science! Put your brain to the test with a plexer challenge, climb inside an electrostatic field, and make your own "atomic" glow-in-the-dark gak to take home. Then experience the chilling effects of 320 degrees below zero Liquid Nitrogen as we make instant ice cream right before your eyes! Wrap up the day by discovering the many functions of the human body in Building 3's Body Works exhibit!
Astronomy - Once you design and build your own rocket you will be cleared for takeoff! Launch your rocket into space and explore our solar system's stars and constellations by creating your very own star map to take home. After that you will come back down to Earth to enjoy some delicious ice cream made from some of the coldest stuff on the planet: Liquid Nitrogen! Finish your day at the Science on a Sphere exhibit to see real time data sets of planet Earth and beyond!
Dinosaurs - Venture into prehistoric times and become a paleontologist as we uncover fossils from the past! Discover how fossils are made and how many different types there are. Go on your own fossil dig and assemble a dinosaur skeleton, then create a shark tooth necklace or dinosaur egg to take home. Lastly, dig into a bowl of some delicious Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream! When your party is over, head into Building 1 to see the Dinosaur exhibit where all you learned about comes to life!
Bugs & Butterflies - Become an entomologist and explore the world of butterflies and other 6-legged friends!
