Former P.S. 261 teacher Carmelo Piazza makes science and math super fun for your birthday kid. The self-proclaimed science geek weaves close-up creature encounters, hands-on experiments and plenty of gross jokes into the two-hour shebang at his studio space. Youngsters start by meeting the likes of a blue-tongued skink, corn snakes, bearded dragons and more, then they get to the really fun stuff—experiments! Once the little Einsteins have worked up an appetite, they chow down on parent-provided food, drinks and snacks. Ages 3–11.
