Your Questions answered:
What do Birthday Parties look like at MiniMakers?
Our team of Creative STEM Instructors and General Manager design the 3 hour event which includes science demonstrations, a project and an activity/game and fresh popcorn from our Popcorn Machine made my our -in house Popcorn Station Master! These would be developed in line with the theme of the party decided by yourself. We aim to incorporate exploration and discovery (through the science demonstrations), art and design (coloring, decorating and imagining), build and assembly, tools and safety, and a game/activity at the end.
They will use the child safe wood working tools – drill, jigsaw, lathe, sander – and assemble/build something using the pieces, assemble a model/kit/3D jigsaw, and colour/decorate shapes cut out with the laser machine which they are allowed to watch while wearing the required safety glasses. We will choose science demonstrations that excite them and usually relate to the project they are doing and/or the theme of the party. For eg, we have done a Frozen/Spy Theme party for which they made a periscope and cipher to crack a frozen themed code and spot frozen characters and we demonstrated how dry ice and liquid nitrogen work with cheezies and balloons. For another, we had a soccer theme so we created 3d jigsaws of soccer players complete with the t-shirts that matched the kid’s actual one, and used a catapult mechanism to show the practical application of a catapult in physiological terms for soccer players. They then had a match. For one we had a Mickey and Minnie theme so they made remote control cars and with Mickey and Minnie cut -outs to color and put inside the cars and had a racing game at the end, These events are customized depending on the theme and we have space for you to serve food. We also have lower stools and tables for the kiddos to eat. We do not serve food but we have a fridge and freezer you can use if needed. We do offer popcorn made fresh on site with our in-house popcorn machine trolley.

The price is a flat rate of $450 + tax and we can accommodate up to 20 people safely and comfortably. If you plan to have children under the age of 3 we do as that they are accompanied by a parent and if you have over 15 children we recommend having no more than 4-5 adults at any time in the shop.
