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 for science parties at your place! We still bring hand sanitiser, fresh lab-coats and glasses, and try to give the kids as much space as possible. 

If you have any questions about our parties please contact us 🙂


The Alpha Party

The birthday child has an extra special role to play in the show and every child make something to take home.

The Alpha Party is perfect for the budding mini scientist. It is competitively priced at $395 for up to 20 children and $15/head for additional guests.

How does an Alpha Party work?

We start by getting the kids decked out in their lab coats and safety goggles before presenting a mini science show which includes a big happy birthday for the Birthday Child.

Now its Experiment time! The laboratory table will be stacked with pipettes, syringes, test tubes, stirrers, plates, cups and heaps more gear to “science” their take home creations to life. Every child has their own set and will fully partake in the experimenting action under the careful guidance of our Presenters. Twisted Science are the party fun experts so every party will be a blast!

An Alpha Party Includes:

  • Two highly trained and amazingly fun Scientwist Presenters
  • 60 mins of hair-raising demos and hands-on science
  • A take-home science creation
  • Two trestle tables (you may need to supply extra depending on numbers)
  • Microphone and small PA if needed
  • Safety glasses and lab-coats to wear on the day
  • A memorable and fantastic party experience!

Optional Extras:

  • Party bags packed full of sciencey goodness
  • Take-home versions of our labcoats
