The Twisted scientists exceeded our expectations totally on all levels. They were great with the kids, friendly, polite and professional. They put on a fantastic show – and were completely unfazed by the forty degree day too – thank you for all your efforts scientists! So many highlights from the various experiments, but I think the rocket launch at the end was my favourite – wow! Most importantly the kids loved it!

    Exceeded expectations on all levels
  • The presenters Isaak and Edith were faultless. On time and self sufficient (I was busy organizing the other stuff that needed to be done) They had 31 5 and six year olds active and engaged for more than an hour. Considering the class Jacob is in (75% boys), this is by no means easy.
    They were knowledgeable, friendly, fun, organised and patient.

    I have already shared and recommended you to friends and family on Facebook who have seen the pictures and want details 🙂

    Isaak and Edith were Great!
  • Thanks so much to the Scientwists – my son had an awesome party. All the kids thoroughly enjoyed the show and hands-on slime making session. The parents were all very impressed too – not just with the entertaining program but the fact the presenters (Camille and Peter) were able to keep the attention of 19 kids for 1 hour!

    Peter and Camille were fantastic – friendly, fun, knowledgeable and they had the kids enthralled for the entire event. I was also impressed with their pre and post set-up and clean-up arrangements (very efficient!)

    I was so impressed at how smoothly everything went and how much the kids enjoyed it, that I’ve happily recommended Scientwist parties to friends and colleagues.

    Customer service was excellent throughout the booking process.  My only observation is that your website was a little out-of-date on the info for the party packages – but you’ve already said this will be updated soon.

    Thank you all for a great party!

    Awesome Party
  • Thank you so much to both yourself for all the information before the party, but also to your fabulous party scientists Peter and Isaac. They had a great rapport with the children, and were very patient! This kids had a great time, particularly the birthday boy.

    Thanks for the info!
  • We were thrilled with how the event went. ____ said it was his best birthday party ever and the other children had a great time.
    The presenters were great- they arrived early and took their time in finishing, which was great and engaged with the kids really well.
    A number of the other parents were also very impressed with the event.
    Best Birthday Ever!
  • Hi Sciencetwist Team,
    Big thank you for Sara and Isaak for helping us to organise a fabulous party!
    Fabulous Party!
  • Hi Scientwists Team,

    Thank you for providing another great Science Show at Frankston Library on Saturday. We counted around 70 children who attended. The two presenters were fantastic and very engaging. And it is great to see young female Scientists at work – great role models. I am happy with your service, communications and booking process. And it is an affordable and popular event for our library members and community. We would definitely recommend you to other people as well as other libraries.

    Great Library Show!
  • Well, what can I say from the time of the first call to inquire, to the bookings, to the presenters, to the science show to the kids participation- well is was all smooth sailing and fantastic. Isaac and Ellen were so easy to get along with and the kids loved them… Now I’m talking about 4 & 5 year old as they all sat there with excitement.
    Thank you so much, we will book again
    Easy Booking and Great Party!
  • Our kids had a terrific time at the ‘science party’ we booked for Harry (turning 8) on the weekend. All of the children had a ball – they were all completely involved and entertained by the experiments and their role in creating their own little rockets… it was even better than we had expected. All-in-all it was a fun and very professional experience and we would happily do it again should any of the kids put in a request! Very capable people (Ben and Kathleen) and well-organised… both had a good amount of patience in coordinating 17 young children in a confined space! Thanks for making his day special!

  • Phoenix’s 8th birthday was a huge success thanks to the scientwists and their fabulous experiments. All the children had such fun making their own lava lamps, which are still being played with weeks after the party. The science show was lots of fun with some memorable rocket launching which caused enormous excitement. Kathy and Kathleen kept the children engaged and under control the entire time. The party bags were also a big hit. Thank you.

  • Makenzie’s science party exceeded expectation and both Ben and Kathleen delivered an amazing party and managed, with ease, to engage 20, 6 year olds for nearly an hour and a half! The kids loved the lab coats, loved the experiments with fire and were amazed to see their own rockets launch right in front of their faces. The laughter and fun the kids had was magical to watch and Ben and Kathleen put on a science show that both kids and adults were totally engaged in. Thank you Scientwists for what was truely a memorable 6th birthday for Makenzie and his friends. We can’t wait for someone else to have a Science party with you so we can do it all over again!

  • We had 15 children to entertain and Ben & Kathleen were fabulous hosts. All the children had a great time and we would thoroughly recommend them. We will be looking at using them again next year for another party and by then the astronaut will have been retrieved from the roof.

Science Birthday Parties

We have been hosting hands-on science birthday parties for years and whenever we host one, our top priority is making sure every single participant has the best time possible. While we love teaching kids all about science and the world around them, our kids parties emphasise the fun factor above all else. With a great range of experiments and programs to choose from you can give your kids a treat with a slimy, messy, creative and super-duper fun science themed birthday party!

All Parties, Not Just Birthdays

Our kids science parties work equally well for other kids events too! Over the last decade we have modified our birthday parties to work fantastically well for events such as kindergarten visits, bar mitzvahs, christenings, family days, holiday programs and heaps more. If you see a birthday party theme or experiment you like, please ask us and we would be more than happy to mould our party to be brilliant for any event you had in mind.

Below are the three most commonly booked kids parties: the Alpha Party, Beta Party and Science Show!
