Virtual Birthday Party FAQ

What is a virtual birthday party?

Since you can’t come to the science centre for your party, we are bringing the science centre to you - right in your very own home! Through a mixture of science demos and hands-on experiments, all curated by the science team from TELUS World of Science – Edmonton, the birthday child and their friends will have a blast. All you need is a device with an internet connection!

What technology is needed?

The virtual birthday parties are hosted on Microsoft teams. All virtual birthday party attendees require an electronic device and internet access. A tablet, desktop computer or laptop should work well. We do not recommend using a cell phone to connect. Guests can either download the Microsoft Teams App or join from their browser.

Is the technology tested in advance?

The Science Presenter facilitating the party will join the meeting 10 minutes in advance of the party. Party attendees are encouraged to log in at that time to make sure their mics and videos are working so we can start the science fun on time.

What about supplies?

Each themed party has several hands-on experiments which the children will conduct at home during the party. Supplies will need to be gathered in advance to be ready to go for the party. The experiments were selected carefully to ensure that most attendees would already have the majority of the supplies in their homes. The virtual party invitation will include the list of supplies for the party.

How do I book a party?

Please fill out the birthday party information request form and a member of our bookings team will contact you the following business day to answer any additional questions and to book the party.

What if I need to cancel?

Refunds will be granted upon written email request 14 days prior to the virtual birthday party. No refund/transfer will be issued with less than 14 days’ notice before the date. An administration fee of $15.00 will be assessed on all refunds/transfers. Please direct cancellation emails to bookings@twose.ca.

What if an attendee misses the party?

It is the responsibility of the family of each birthday attendee to ensure they have the proper technical requirements and that they log into the birthday party at the correct time.
