At a Glance

Share the excitement of scientific discovery with your grandchild in the secluded, woodland environment of Lancaster, Pennsylvania — also known as Pennsylvania Dutch County, home to the Amish. On this interactive STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) program, introduce your grandchild to timeless scientific principles you may know about, as they share with you the technological advances familiar to them. Then find out about the Amish community’s view on technology, where things like electricity and the internet are limited to preserve tradition. Work together to test water rockets, observe and interact with animals at the nature center, test the laws of physics on the ropes course and more!
