Join the North Museum for our biggest event of the summer! STEAM Carnivale is a fun-filled day of experiments, activities, and projects that inspire kids of all ages with the wonders of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM). This year, STEAM Carnivale will be a BILINGUAL event!

Activities will include:
– Planetarium shows in English AND Spanish
– Girl Scout STEM Mobile
– SpheroBots
-Art and Technology Demos
– and so much more!

Bring your WEBELOS Cub Scouts to the Lancaster Science Factory to earn their Webelos/Arrow of Light Elective Adventure: Engineer Pin! Scouts will talk about the different types of engineers and complete hands-on projects like creating a water filter and building a catapult. This workshop will complete all adventure requirements and the pins will be distributed at the end of the session. The cost is $10 per WEBELOS Scout, Den Leaders are free and any other chaperones are the $7 group rate.

We are not able to integrate non-Webelos siblings/friends into Workshop, but they are able to spend time on the exhibit floor during the program as long as they have adult supervision. Younger scouts may earn our Commemorative Science Achievement Patch on the exhibit floor while the Webelos complete the Pin workshop. The cost of the achievement patch is $3 per scout.

Scientific Method and Data Discovery: The Walk through

Students will explore the Scientific Method while completing the “Strength of Different Brands of Paper Towels.” As the students tour through proper scientific experimental process they will briefly research background knowledge, create a hypothesis, write an experimental procedure, identify dependent and independent variable, test their experiment using multiple trials, record their data, analyze their data including graphing, identify their results, and lastly create a conclusion where the hypothesis is re-evaluated.

Cost is $15 per child, per session

Structural Integrity: Strength in ACTION

Students will take their knowledge of strength of shape not just material to complete two different BRIDGE challenges. The first challenge is to create a truss bridge from toothpicks and gum drops. The challenge is to span a set distance and hold the maximum amount of weight. The second challenge is create suspension or cable stay bridge from common household materials to span a distance and hold a set amount of weight without displaying structural deflection. To help with the understanding students will participate in the building and supporting of a kid friendly stable stay bridge they can actually walk on.

Cost is $15 per child, per session
