  • Who is running the party? Is it safe?
    STEM Zone parties are led by experienced, qualified STEM teachers and their trained assistants. Every activity is designed for maximum wow factor and maximum safety! We have completed thorough risk assessments and children are instructed through each step of the way. Safety Lab Coats and Glasses are provided and we are also qualified in First Aid. Please inform us at the time of booking if any of the guests have allergies or other medical conditions so we can ensure every child can participate in every activity!
  • Do you cater for children with diverse needs?
    Yes, we value inclusivity, and will work with families to offer the best experience possible, for as many children as possible!
  • Can I bring party food to the venue?
    We do not allow party food to be brought to the venue for health and safety reasons. We do, however, have a number of great food packages available for your guests, or you can eat at home or at the local park. You can definitely bring your birthday cake to the venue. We have cutlery and crockery available. Children also receive a bag of popcorn, cordial and small party bag including the product of their final take home activity.
  • Can you provide the birthday cake?
    This is something we are looking into, but right now we are not able to provide the birthday cake for your party. We could offer some recommendations as there are some amazing local cake makers in Gippsland! Either way, seeing a science-themed birthday cake for your child would absolutely make our day!
  • Did you say you had party invitations for us to use?
    Yes, invitations are available for FREE download. These can be found at the bottom of the Birthday Party page on our website. They are configured as 2x A5 invitations on 1x A4 sheet of paper so you can cut them in half to save paper and ink! If you are having trouble or do not have access to a printer we would be happy to help. Give us a call and you can pick some up from our venue at STEM Zone (Shop 2. 81 Main South Rd, Drouin, VIC 3818).
  • Can siblings participate in the cool STEM activities too?
    Absolutely! Siblings must be counted in the final booking number. Any siblings under 7 years old must be directly supervised by their guardian or other adult guest for every activity.
  • Do adults need to stay for the party? If so, can they participate in the activities?
    We require at least 1 adult guest present to supervise the children as they share the duty of care for the children attending. As our presenters are focusing on a dynamic, engaging party making sure all children are safe while conducting the experiments, a parent is required to maintain children’s wellbeing and their behaviour during the session. Adults are welcome to participate but must be counted in the booking headcount. Please discuss this with us prior to the party.
  • How long does it go for?
    STEM Zone parties are booked for 2 hour sessions. The STEM activities run for approx. 1.15 hours and then 45 minutes is allocated for food and party bags and the CAKE!
  • Can we host the party at our house instead?
    We do not visit houses or other venues routinely. We could potentially organise our staff to bring the party to a different venue but this will incur an additional fee plus travel costs.
  • Can the kids wear costumes?
    Yes, we would love that! During the activities we ask that children wear one of our lab coats over the top (or smock for smaller scientists)...which is usually pretty exciting for them as well!
