Children's Science Parties with the super Science Boffins!

“It’s a crazy idea but it just might work!”

Our Science Shows and Workshops enthral children of all agaes whether it's at a brithday party, science show, village fete or just a special event!

We offer special workshops and parties on subjects such as Simple Machines, Transport, Sir Isaac Newton and Bernoulli’s Principle.

Usually lasting between 30 and 60 minutes, our science shows and workshops include many of the following topics:

Sample Science Demonstrations:

  • Electricity & Static Electricity - children learn about static electricity with fascinating demonstrations and, if they are good, enjoy a small electric shock!
  • Slime & Polymers – children take home a tub of noxious glowing slime in snotty green or putrid pink and in the process learn about polymers, both natural and man-made.
  • Let there be Light – colour and light and how the eye works culminates in an amazing indoor fireworks display observed through diffraction glasses.
  • Sounds like Fun - experiments to explain sound and how it travels complemented by some serious karaoke fun.
  • Heat of the Moment - temperature and explaining different methods by which heat is transmitted; our experiments demonstrate relative temperatures and how candy floss or pop-corn is made (possibly with samples!).
  • It’s a load of Hot Air – we look at the science behind hot-air balloons and the Wright Brothers’ early aeroplane designs, including Bernoulli’s Principle and the History of Flight, demonstrated by the making and flying of paper aeroplanes.
  • Crazy Reactions - understanding chemical reactions and the factors that affect their rate of change in fun and interesting ways, resulting in amazing lights, colour variations and gas formations.
  • Magical Science – discovering the science behind some popular magic tricks and optical illusions.
  • Bad Air Day - experiments revealing the properties of air, smell, air pressure and the creation of a vortex.
  • Water Rockets - an amazing day making and testing the power of rockets – whoosh!!.

“Just wanted to say thank you for a fantastic day yesterday; Boffin Fiona was a huge hit! She was very well organised, excellent with the children and put on a fabulous performance. Both children and teachers were equally impressed.”

Any birthday party ideas that you would like Science Boffins to reflect in the party?  Let us know beforehand and we will try to show appropriate experiments. We have themed special birthday party ideas - Dinosaur Parties, Super Heroes, Incredible Hulk, Wizards, Pirates, Cowboy Western, Halloween, Space, Volcanos and Harry Potter parties.  All can be themed, albeit loosely, at our parties.

For example, the following experiments were used in a Wild West party!

Potions

  • Glow in the dark
  • Foaming Blood
  • Coloured liquids
  • Clinging Slime
  • Evil smells

“As the children were leaving I heard many say it was by far the best party they had been to. Many, many thanks and please thank Boffin Jack - he was terrific.” with best wishes, Rosey.

Do you have special birthday party ideas you want to tell us about?  Why not share it with us and we will try to mould the party to suit your requirements?

When you think about it there is almost no limit to the Birthday Party Ideas that you can come up with.  Since Science is all around us everything is there to be incorporated in your birthday party. Ideas that might at first seem silly can sometimes make for a very original idea.  For example we perform an experiment called Elephant's toothpaste.  But the very same experiment can be used for birthday party ideas by calling is a bubbling pot for Harry Potter or a steaming volcano for the volcanologist amongst us.  With the use of colouring you have Alien's Blood for a Sci-Fi birthday party ideas party or Martian landscape if yours is a Space themed party.  We can even call it a prehistoric swamp if your birthday party ideas are geared towards dinosaurs. Do you know what, the lab at Science Boffins have just come up with some great Birthday Party Ideas.  What about a Science Birthday Party in a box?  This is the next thing that we are working on is a new concept where we will send you all the experiments that you need for either a one hour or a one and a half hour party.

Some examples that we might add are:

  • Flash Paper and Diffraction Grating Glasses
  • Disappearing Water with Water Gel
  • Snow, made in children's hands
  • Make Slime
  • Turn water into wine (and back again)
  • Spill ink on your white Science Boffins coat and blow it away

Not only will you get all the material and equipment but we plan to make a video so you can actually see a qualified Science Boffin demonstrating these great new science birthday party ideas.  We will send you a typed script so you just can't go wrong.

Contact us and let’s arrange a special party everyone will remember!

Science parties are fun with the Science Boffins

How much do children's entertainers cost?

The cost of childrens’ entertainers varies and depends on:

  1. The length and content of the show. You can choose from one hour upwards in ½ hour increments. However, we don’t recommend more than one hour for four to five-year-olds.
  2. The number of children. A minimum of five kids is normal and we recommend a maximum of thirty. More than 30? Don't worry, you can always book a second Boffin as support.
  3. The distance from your nearest Boffin.

As a guide the basic cost of a Children's Party starts from approximately £10.00 per head (based on 25 children).

 Childrens science parties

We offer exciting, interactive and educational science parties throughout Bristol. As the home of At-Bristol, the South West city is a fantastic hub for all things science which is why we are pleased to offer our interactive kids science parties throughout the city.

Bristol is filled with famous landmarks and visitor attractions that all feature different aspects of science in real life. From the Clifton Suspension Bridge to the SS Great Britain, Bristol is a great city to see science in action! Bristol has also been home to accomplished scientists including chemist Humphry Davy, physicist Paul Dirac and planetary scientist Colin Pillinger, the man behind the Beagle 2 project. This is why Bristol is the perfect place to host a Science Boffins party to inspire a future generation of scientists.

Don't Pop The Ballson! | Kids Parties By Science Boffins

Our children’s science parties can work in any space. All we need is room for a small table, the Boffin and the children! If we are lucky enough to have good weather (we’ll have a chat with our meteorologist friends), we can demonstrate our messier and explosive science experiments outside.
