Science Expert Pin

iiiiLancaster Science Factory offers “Science Expert” pin, a turnkey program for Daisies, Brownies, Juniors and Cadettes.

If your troop has completed the Scientific Achievement Badge, then they can reach the next level and become a “Science Expert!”

Like the badge program, as the child completes each activity, the Scout leader “signs-off” on the pin activity in the book. Upon completion of the requirements the Scout has earned their Science Expert pin and it’s presented at the Science Factory or at a special ceremony.

There is a $3 Fee for the purchase of the pin.

Each Scout receives a Science Badge workbook which includes various activities depending on the level of the Scout. As the child completes each activity, the Scout leader “signs-off” the activity in the book and they earn their Science Badge when all the requirements are completed. The Badge is presented at the Science Factory or at a special ceremony.

There is a $3 Fee for the purchase of the badge.

Brownie Home Scientist and Inventor Badge Instructional Program

A staff member will lead a group of Brownie scouts in activities so that they can fully complete the requirements to earn the Home Scientist and Inventor badges on the dates specified below.

Troops must pre-register and the program is limited to 20 girls per session and there is a $3 charge per Scout.

Brownie Home Scientist Badge: October 7th & November 4th at 10:30am 
Brownie Inventor Badge: October 7th  & November 4th at 1:30pm

It will take a group of 15-20 scouts one and a half to two hours to complete the activities in our classroom space. For Home Scientist the scouts will experiment with emulsions, static electricity, density, a chemical reaction, and homemade ‘silly putty’.

For the Inventor Badge the scouts will brainstorm (about multiple uses, creative problem solving, and needs) before designing and constructing a model of an invention that satisfies a need they have identified.

Complimentary Group Admission

Complimentary group admission to Girl Scout Troops and patrols visiting the Science Factory as a pre-registered group, not as part of a badge program but as general admission to the Science Factory, enabling the girls to explore all the exhibits in the Mueller Hall of Science. Activity guides will be provided to Scout leaders. Scout leaders are admitted at no charge. Siblings, parents and troop guests are admitted under our current group rate.

Complimentary Individual Admission

Complimentary admission to individual Girl Scouts, regardless of rank, when they wear their vest or with proof of membership in the Scouts. This will enable the girls to explore the Science Factory with their families. Family members receive the discounted rate of $7.50/person when admitted with a scout.
