twistED Party Time in and around Melbourne

Kids science parties are a favourite , both for our team of Presenters and the kids they love to entertain and inspire. Science parties tick all the boxes for boys and girls parties with a bit of an edge. Every party has been designed and tweaked for many years to provide fantastic experience for everyone involved.

We are the science party experts and our Presenters are trained to provide the maximum amount of fun while still keeping everything under control. Fun and science all in one party! The kids may even learn a thing or two.

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.

Social Distancing Parties at your place!

We’re excited to welcome you back, and bet you’re super excited about your party, but we need to do things a bit differently for now. We want to keep everyone safe at our parties over this tricky time. Here’s how our awesome social distancing safe parties work:

Planning your Experiment and Everything Parties:

Choose from three super fun themes:

  • Lava Lamps
  • Bath Bombs
  • Bagooze Slime

At the party: 

We will supply sanitiser to every guest, including adults, and ask that everyone uses it before starting.

Every party guest gets their own clean set of equipment, including a fresh labcoat and safety glasses.

Shared resources will be kept to a minimum, and everyone still gets to take their creations home!

We’re limiting the party to 15 guests including the birthday child and any siblings.

We will do our best to maintain a safe distance between our party host and guests, but keep the fun level to the max!

Hands on fun with TwistED Science will be different for a bit, but our aim is still for you to be curious, create and connect with your family and friends!

We look forward to celebrating the Best. Party. Ever. with you!

$395 for up to 15 kids

Our full range of parties will be back soon!

During this time of social distancing restrictions we are sticking with the three parties above. But we have heaps of other options that will be coming back as soon as it is safe to do so. Take a look at all our parties that will be back before you know it!

We couldn't have been happier with the service provided by your team. The online booking service was simple and responses were quick. On the day the guys were punctual, friendly and the kids had a wonderful time!! All the parents commented on how well they managed to captivate a group of nearly 20 six-year-olds! I would definitely recommend you to friends and family - really good value for money compared to other parties entertainers I have engaged before, and just lovely to see a company that is all about making science fun for for kids! - Kat

Thank you so much to Ben and Nick for providing such a terrific afternoon of fun at our son’s 6th birthday party on the weekend. All the kids had a ball from start to finish, and were kept engaged and entertained for the full hour, which is no mean feat with 20 six year olds! TwistED Science bring everything with them - tables, protective eyewear and lab coats for the kids (which look adorable!) and set it all up in advance. Having looked at quite a few other options, we really felt they provided excellent value for money, and were continuously impressed with their organisation and professionalism. Leading up to the party, Ben and the team were happy to answer a myriad of questions and they were very flexible with a great range of party options and even tailored some of the activities to suit our needs. It was such a memorable day for our son and he is hoping to have them back again in the future!

Thank you so much!

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

Adam Dettrick - TwistED Science Party Customer

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!

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!

Harry's Scientwist Party

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.
