Facilitation of Party
The hosting adult will facilitate the party. A Science Factory educator will facilitate the hands-on science activity. The party host must make arrangements to have adequate adult supervision on hand. Party guests must be supervised at all times, except during the science activity. There must be at least one adult in attendance for every 10 children.
You may decorate the room with freestanding decorations, tableclothes, banners, streamers, and signs. Balloons must be weighted down. The party host is responsible for setting up and taking down decorations, as well as disposing of all garbage.
Food and Drinks
All food and drink must stay in the birthday party room.
The birthday party room can seat up to 24 guests total.
Because of our tight birthday party schedule, we ask that you please leave the birthday party room in the same condition as you find it upon entry. Remove or discard all leftover food, wipe down table and counter surfaces, return folding chairs to storage space, dispose of trash & recycling in the proper receptacles provided.
If you are the last party of the day (2 - 4pm), please remember that the Science Factory closes at 4pm. Your party must leave the Museum at 4pm. The Museum's doors are locked at closing, so if you need to make multiple trips to the car, please alert a Science Factory employee so that you will not be locked out.
You will be assessed a $50 fee for not properly cleaning the room of trash or decorations. To ensure there is no cleaning fee assessed, please check in with the birthday party coordinator prior to leaving.
A 100% refund will be given if party is canceled 4 weeks prior to the party date.
A 50% refund will be given if party is canceled 3 weeks prior to the party date.
A 25% refund will be given if the party is canceled 1 week prior to the party date.
