Science is Amazing Festival

  • Sun, April 23, 2023
  • 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM
  • Lancaster Science Factory, 454 New Holland Avenue, Lancaster, PA 17602


Registration is closed

make717 will again be onsite at this outreach event!

We are looking for volunteers to assist in two key areas.


Share an activity, demonstration, and/or experiment.  Activities should be geared toward K-8 students and their families, and ideally involve the students as hands-on participants.  All STEAM activities must be hands-on, safe for children, and related to science, technology and engineering. Electricity is available!


Since 2014 we've been headed to this event with a "learn to solder" activity.  This year will be featuring a circuit designed by our own make717 members.  We have 250 boards, so we'll need a good number of folks to volunteer in this area.  No experience is needed, we'll train you before you help attendees finish the kit that they get to keep!
