Parents love Science Central Birthday Parties!

"Everyone at Science Central was so kind and accommodating and the Educator did such a great job with the kids during the science experiment and liquid nitrogen ice cream session. So much fun!"

"I have been getting texts from parents saying their kid won't stop talking about it. I think it's a safe bet to say we will be back next year for birthdays!"
