Birthdays are Super at Explorit

An Explorit birthday party in full swing.


By Lisa Justice

Special to the Enterprise


It’ll be a whole year of happy birthdays and un-birthdays for everyone who celebrates at  Explorit this year.  Celebrate your special day by spending a delightful weekend morning with your best buddies at Explorit!


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 four 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 will also be stopping 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”!


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 are also available and include use of Explorit facilities for your own 2-hour event.


Each party is designed for 15 guests, and can accommodate up to 20.  Discount pricing is available for Explorit members.  Call Explorit at 530-756-0191 for more info or to book your party!
