The Force Returns

THE FORCE RETURNS TO THE LANCASTER SCIENCE FACTORY!

The Lancaster Science Factory is being invaded! Don’t miss our sixth-annual, weekend-long takeover celebrating the science and characters of the beloved Star Wars films. Visitors are encouraged to join the fun and come dressed as their favorite Star Wars character!

Attendance will be limited to 30% capacity to ensure the health and safety of visitors and performers alike. See below to reserve your tickets and space in a one-of-a-kind Padawan Workshop or Star Wars Slime Workshop!

Saturday, November 14th, 12:00pm – 3:00pm

Explore the Science Factory alongside characters from the LIGHT SIDE.

Dozens of costumed characters (and droids!)  from Capital City Jedi Knights, Ghost Base,  Galactic Academy, and the Mid-Atlantic Droid Builders will be at free photo op stations around the exhibit hall.

Pose in front of a Death Star backdrop while holding a Jedi or Sith light saber!  Or travel across the Star Wars universe to Hoth, Endor, and other worlds by posing in front of two Green Screens!  Look out for pop-up battles performed by the Capital City Jedi Knights on our Rock N Roll Stage.

An extra special experience: Sign up for a Padawan Workshop!  Kids ages 5 and up will make their own light saber in our Maker Space and then use it to complete a special Jedi Apprentice training. Spaces in this truly memorable experience are limited, so be sure to sign up when purchasing your admission!

 

Sunday, November 15th, 12:00pm – 2:00pm

Explore the Science Factory alongside characters from the DARK SIDE.

Photo opportunities abound with dozens of costumed characters from Garrison Carida, part the 501st Legion, “The World’s Definitive Imperial Star Wars Costuming Organization” specializing in dark side characters. Have you ever seen a bunch of Storm Troopers trying to build a Giant Arch, or Darth Vader dance on an Energy Floor?  This day is a must-see event!

An extra special experience: Sign up for a Star Wars Slime Workshop! Kids ages 5 and up will make their own Star Wars-themed slime to take home. This workshop also includes some messy and spectacular chemistry demonstrations! Spaces in this one-of-a-kind workshop are limited so be sure to sign up when purchasing your admission!
