Looking for an inexpensive way to entertain your kids this winter when the weather is nasty outside?
Look no further than the Lancaster Science Factory.
Not only is the Science Factory relatively inexpensive, the size and variety of activities will keep the 10 and under crowd busy for hours.
The best part of course, is that your kids will think they’re just playing when actually they’re learning.
Electricity, leverage, light, load, gravity, and many other concepts are all covered at the Lancaster Science Factory.
Kids get the chance to experiment with making circuits, building a dam, flying paper airplanes, and building their own race car. With over 65 interactive exhibits and workstations there truly is something for everyone.
One of my younger guys favorite exhibits is the Rock-n-Roll stage complete with microphone, lighting, and sound effects. Kids who love to perform can test out their inner superstar.
My older two mostly enjoy being creative and building their own structures.
The suggested age range for the Lancaster Science Factory is from preschool to 8th grade.
I have an 8th grader who is very science minded and will happily spend a good 2 hours here but overall I would say the exhibits are mainly geared for 5th grade and younger.
If you live locally, I highly recommend purchasing a yearly membership. At just $89/year, it includes everyone in your household and is well worth the investment.
The Lancaster Science Factory has truly been a lifesaver when my rowdy crew of 5 has been cooped up indoors for too long and needs a place to exercise their bodies and minds. I couldn’t even tell you how many rainy or snowy mornings/afternoons we have spent here over the last year of our membership.
Hope you enjoyed the quick video of our recent trip and that maybe I’ve convinced you to give the Lancaster Science Factory a try!
