The Big Thinkers Scientist, Anti Matter, that came to my son's birthday party was AWESOME! All the kids and adults loved her. She was enthusiastic and the kids were so engaged and excited to learn. I would highly recommend Big Thinkers. Thank you do much for making my son's 8th birthday so fun! - Amy & Jake Mulkey

We are a public library that had a fairly positive experience last year with Big Thinkers so we asked them to return. BIG MISTAKE! They did not send the "professor" we asked for nor let us know who was coming until morning of event then sent different ones for each of three days. Office sent out incorrect information to performers but sent me out multiple invoices. As a public library we cannot legally prepay. Some equipment was missing from trunk, or equipment was in need of repair. Female performers were great with the presentation. Male never connected with children, talked above their heads, made jokes at their expense, and drug the presentation out to a whole hour. GROAN! Needless to say we will be taking a break from using them and maybe the organization can get their act together.

The scientist were all very knowledgeable and animated. Our students were actively engaged throughout the lessons. We especially like that each child got to leave with something.

Used for my daughter's 8th birthday party - boys and girls alike LOVED it! They were in awe! Ms. Ann T. Matter did a great job getting the kids enthused, and also containing that enthusiasm as appropriate. Highly recommend adding the bubbling potions - kids LOVED the dry ice and were telling their parents all about it. Best compliment is when one of your guests tells their parent that is what they want for their next party!!

We had Big Thinkers for my son's 6th birthday party and they were great! The scientist, Ann T. Matter, kept the kids interested and on the edge of their seats the entire time. It was a really great, participatory experience. Would highly recommend them to anyone!

We had Big Thinkers for my daughter's 11th birthday and everyone loved it! I was not sure how well they would handle the older kids, but it was fantastic. Big Thinkers kept the girls entertained and interested the entire time. A great success!

I work at preschool, and we all love Big Thinkers! There are tons of programs to choose from geared to whatever topic you are looking for. The scientists are wonderful with the kids and keep them engaged for the full hour. The staff at Big Thinkers always calls to confirm dates and start times, and we have never had a scientist start late. We have Big Thinkers out to our school once a month, and we will continue with them because of their awesome professionalism. Great company!

Instead of the typical birthday party activities we wanted to provide an educational and entertaining experience for our son and his birthday guests. Big Thinkers Science Exploration was a hit with children and parents alike! Lunartrese captivated the audience of 24 kids and their parents with her varied experiments which all included audience participation. Not only was she timely and professional, Lunartrese engaged all of the children and knew how to control a room full of 5 year olds! Who knew science could be so fun?! Actually, we did and wanted to spread the gospel to others. We would highly recommend Big Thinkers for a unique party experience.

One of the 2 promised items for the kids (Rainbow Fireworks glasses) was not provided as promised on the website and on the phone. I was never given any money discounted. Unable to do rocket launch due to wind and it took a week for this money to be refunded. The show itself was okay.

Booked Prof. Watt after daughter loved his show at a friend's party. He was on time, polite, professional and very patient with a room of 20 girls ages 6 and 7. Girls loved experiments and even older sister was impressed by slime. Great experience and daughter is already asking if they can come back next year and do different experiments. Cotton candy add on was a huge hit!

I signed my child up for a summer camp and then they changed the location at the last minute. The location went from the Friend's School to some office park in a run down section of Clarkston. They refused to refund my money and the staff were rude and unprofessional.

We had Big Thinkers out to our public library for a summer reading program. The kids loved Moon Dog and the experiments he did. I think the flash paper was one the kids really enjoyed. Moon Dog was early, ready to go on time, polite and did a great job with the kids. "Fizz, Boom, Pop" delivered everything that was promised.
