Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What time should I tell my guests to arrive?
A: Please have your guests arrive at least 30 minutes before our party is to begin. Very often guests are late which interferes with the party. Our party will begin at the start time and end at the finish time.


Q: What time will the Scientist arrive?
A: Our Scientist will arrive shortly before the party. The set-up time for our party is minimal and only takes 2-3 minutes.

Q: What about my adult guests?
A: We love parents and encourage them to attend. However, you may want to have an area for them to socialize. When the parents crowd around the tables, it is distracting to the children and difficult for our Scientist to conduct the planned activities.
