Curiosity, Creativity, and Confidence.

In 2020, members of the staff and board worked together to create a revised mission that better reflected the work that our staff does and how we live every day at the Lancaster Science Factory. This also included a new set of values and a vision for the future.


Our Mission

To inspire curiosity, creativity, and confidence by fostering an inclusive environment for hands-on STEM exploration.

We actively seek to make our facility and educational programs accessible to all.
