  • “We had my daughter’s 6th birthday party at Science Space yesterday afternoon.  I just wanted to let you know that it was fantastic!  So easy to organise, our party host and the rest of the staff were great and the kids had a fantastic time making slime.  There were quite a few parents there that had never been to Science Space and were very impressed not just with the Science Space but with the party set up as well. Please pass on my thanks to the team.”
