Join The Lancaster Science Factory on an outing to the Bates Auditorium of the Lancaster Public Library to play the ‘Ewww! What Happened?’ Game. Guess what happened to the Mad Scientist’s ‘lunch pail’! Was it a physical or a chemical change? In this science program, some of the experiments will be hands-on and there might even be a prize for the one with the most correct guesses! We hope you like things messy…

Please register in advance to secure your place in the game. Program limited to 20 participants. All activities are FREE. Please pay all outstanding library fines before attending event.

The project is made possible by a grant from the Dart Foundation.
