Homeschool Hands-On STEM
We are proud to be a trusted educational partner to homeschool families across Central Pennsylvania. Homeschool classes are offered at the Lancaster Science Factory on select days during the Fall/Winter and Winter/Spring semesters. Classes offer a chance to engage students in group learning and hands-on experimentation.
Programs are designed for students in grade levels 2 – 8. Each semester is divided into themed units and lessons which build from one session to the next. The cost is $15 per students. Parents can enroll students in each session individually or enjoy a discount when enrolling in the entire semester.
Fall 2020 – Fairytale STEM
The Fall 2020 Homeschool Hands-on STEM curriculum will feature science, technology, engineering, and math used to solve problems and answer questions from well-known fairytales. Could you build something as strong as Rapunzel’s hair? Is it possible to prevent Humpty Dumpty from falling to pieces? Would the big bad wolf blow down your house? Students in grades 2nd – 8th will learn and use real STEM principles to find out!

Our Homeschool Class Mission
The mission of our homeschool class programming is to innovatively introduce or reinforce STEM concepts to students in grades 2-8.
As with all of our programs, we strive to connect these topics to meaningful, real-world application. In the sprit of the Lancaster Science Factory, our educators use inquiry-based hands-on learning during each lesson. Student are engaged both individually and in groups.
All classes are based on the Standards Aligned System of the PA Department of Education. We strive to accommodate students’ individual needs and learning styles.
