Science Parties

Birthday Parties

Looking for a new and unique idea to celebrate your child’s next birthday—or just want to plan a fun gathering? Let Van Andel Institute for Education help you celebrate while doing something hands-on, fun, and maybe a little educational. (Shhhh! We won’t tell the kids!)

Our science parties for kids grades K–12 are two hours of hands-on science experiments that engage up to 30 kids to think and act like scientists. You bring the cake, and we’ll provide the activities!

Each party includes:
  • Access to lab area for 2 hours
  • Dedicated party facilitator
  • Fun, hands-on experiments
  • Time with VAI’s animals
  • $15 per child, up to 30 kids (minimum 10)
  • FREE parking
