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.
