Museum of Mathematics Birthday Parties
Gone are the days when math was relegated to blackboards and textbooks—at these parties, it comes to life with themes such as GeoGlow, where partygoers use geometry to construct a giant glow-in-the-dark polyhedron (that's a multifaceted 3-D shape, for you non-geometry whizzes). Or, by applying math skills, they could fashion a structure from tubes and rubber balls. Another option is using megaplex pieces to craft some geometric spaces so giant that kids may enter. A competitive Team Challenge will take party guests inside the museum, solving puzzles on a mathematical scavenger hunt.Kids party for 90 minutes in a private room, nab birthday cake and a special momento, and can spend the rest of the day checking out the museum for free. Additional charges will cover pizza and drinks, goody bags or upgraded party favors, a specialty cake and custom invitations. Ages 3 and up.
