At our Mommy & Me events, enjoy free coffee and meet other Lancaster mommies, daddies and caretakers. Bring your little ones, 5 and under, to the Explore Nature Gallery for a hands-on introduction to science and nature.

March’s Mommy & Me event is all about the unique and fun aspects of eggs. Learn how to make an egg float, bounce and also get an up-close look at a real Ostrich egg. There will be a chance for hands-on experiences with many replica eggs from our collections.

Free with general museum admission and children 5 and under are free.

How strong are egg shells? How are they affected by houshold chemicals? Join us on Friday, April 3rd; Saturday, April 4th; or Monday, April 6th, 2015 to find out!

This activity will run from 10am-11am or 12-1pm in our Science Cafe (seating is first come, first served).

All activities are FREE with your membership or paid admission to the Lancaster Science Factory. Events are geared towards ages 8 and up, but younger children (accompanied by an adult at all times) are also welcome.
