How involved is Explorit in facilitating the Birthday Party?
An Explorit educator facilitates the entire 2 hour birthday party. The 1st hour takes place in the party room where guests will create two themed crafts and view a science lesson presented by the educator. The first hour concludes with guests enjoying their food and opening of gifts. The guests will then enter the main exhibit for a private hour in the gallery.
Can I come early to set up my food ? How late can I stay to clean up?
You may come 20 minutes early to set up and stay 20 minutes later to clean up.

All children attending the party will be counted as party guests. Adult guests participate for free. Children must be supervised by an adult guest at all times.

Yes, but the party organizer must be present and available to receive and pay for the food or you may want to pay for it in advance.

No. Because our birthday parties cater to children and are held within a public park, alcohol or other controlled substance use is NOT allowed.
