The REAL World of Welding

Let High Steel and Lincoln Electric bring you up close and personal to the REAL World of Welding. Try your hand at virtual welding and see if you’ve got the steady welder’s hand. Then dress the part of the arc welder with welding helmet and shirt and actually join two plates by ARC welding. You never know what is to come next as you become a WELDER for a day.
Led by Ronnie Medlock and High Steel Structures LLC

PNC Grow Up Great – “Learning is all around me!” Mobile learning adventure

On August 2nd from 10am-4pm, visit PNC’s “Learning is All Around Me!” Mobile Learning Adventure at the Lancaster Science Factory! All activities are free with your paid LSF admission or membership. No registration needed!

The Mobile Learning Adventure (MLA) is a traveling exhibit that provides an opportunity for parents and caregivers learn about the importance of early childhood education while they engage in fun activities with their children. A part of PNC Grow Up Great – A $350 million, multi year initiative that began in 2004  to help children from birth to age 5 for success in school and life. The MLA includes interactive kiosks and the “What I Want To Be When I Grow Up” station , where kids dress up as different processionals and have their picture superimposed  on an appropriate background. In addition, parents can take home activity books and learning kids that demonstrate how to take everyday moments and turn them into learning opportunities.
