Lots of Fun to Think About!

The Lancaster Science Factory is a hands-on, interactive science center for kids in Pre-K to 8th grade and their families. We are open to the public and available for group reservations and rentals. We host a wide variety of STEM educational programs and workshops and lead STEM educational outreach in our community!


The Lancaster Science Factory is temporarily closed during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The health and wellbeing of our visitors, staff, and volunteers is our highest priority. We will continue to follow recommended guidelines to protect our community, revising our plans in response to the changing situation.

All events and programming during this time have been canceled or postponed. Our team is available by phone and email to reschedule, accept reservations, and confirm cancellations. We will extend all memberships by the amount of time that we are closed.

We’re here to help. The Science Factory knows that parents need educational resources to help keep kids engaged in STEM learning while they’re at home. Check out our at-home resources to spark learning and hands-on STEM play!

As we look to the scientists to provide us with the facts about this outbreak, we are reminded of just how essential science education is to our community. If you agree, we hope that you will consider making a gift to our nonprofit institution during this difficult and unprecedented time. Your gift helps our team to create innovative educational opportunities so children can continue to learn about science, technology, engineering, and math while they are out of school and when we have the chance to reopen.  Another way to help support the Science Factory today is by purchasing a Gift Certificate toward a future visit.

Please visit for more information, and follow us on social media for the latest updates and at-home science activities. We look forward to welcoming you back to the museum soon!
