There are several venue options for a science party!
Advantages for running a science party at home
Running a science party at home is easy to do and comes with a number of benefits:
Science party venue solutions
The following lists a number of science party venue ideas that people have used in the past:
A local Scout or Church Hall
They can often be hired for less than a normal community centre and the funds raised helps your local community.
Your own school or preschool
Schools and preschools already have infrastructure in place to handle large numbers of children.
Teachers are often happy to run these science parties as an extension class, just make sure you seek permission from both the classroom teacher and the school principal.
We've been running school science visits since 2004 and as such we are fully insured, aligned to the curriculum, have all risk assessments needed, have completed Working with Children Checks for each staff member and no activity will affect the school or preschool grounds. If a 'science party' isn't favourable to the teacher, perhaps we can run one of our traditional science visits at your school as a science incursion instead?
Our science workshops are run throughout NSW, QLD, Victoria & ACT in both government and independent primary & high schools and are highly engaging with very strong curriculum links plus we've had consistently fantastic teacher feedback!
Hire a local council community hall.
These council halls are fitted with kitchens and public toilets, and often have additional play equipment, tables and chairs for you to use. Contact your local council for more information. Please be aware that weekends often book out quickly in these venues. Some inner city venues have extremely poor parking, please remember that parking close to the venue is a requirement for us to run a successful science party for you - we carry a large amount of equipment that needs to be unloaded.
