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.

To register for this Workshop, please contact Audrey Lilley at Alilley@tlsf.org
