Follow the Family STEM Trail and discover STEM activities all around you!

The Family STEM Trail will take you on a STEM adventure across Lancaster County. Visit each of the trailhead stops to learn, explore and complete the challenge question.

Win Prizes!

Earn special badges by completing each stop’s challenge question. The Family STEM Trail does not have to be completed in a specific order. Start at any stop, and go from there.

How it works

  1. Select a trailhead stop below for information about the location including the address, point of contact and the challenge question.
  2. Visit the stop to complete the challenge and submit your answer via the challenge question portal.
  3. If you answer the question correctly you will be emailed a certificate of completion.
    Show your certificate of completion email at the stop to receive your trailhead stop patch.
    For unmanned stops, patches can be picked up at the North Museum or the Science Factory (patches #1, #3, and #8).
