Since getting tons of buzz for his goofball approach to science, Boerum Hill residentCarmelo Piazza has seen demand for his summer camps, kids' classes and birthday parties soar. While guests of the Cosmic Cove (the Science Fellow’s studio space) can expect interactions with lizards, Carmelo knows the real secret to kids’ parties: “If you make them laugh, they love you. And then the parents love you.” We spent the afternoon at little Bennett's sixth birthday to get an inside look at birthday parties with Carmelo the Science Fellow—click through our slide show, below, to learn more about the party. 300 Atlantic Ave between Hoyt and Smiths Sts, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn (718-722-0000,carmelothesciencefellow.com). Prices start at $550 for up to 25 children. Ages 3 to 11.
