Hands-on House, Children’s Museum of Lancaster unveiled its newest exhibit—“Clubhouse”—this past weekend, February 10-12. The new exhibit area offers an open-ended art and science exploration space filled with changing activities for children ages 2-10.

On Friday, Feb. 10,  the new exhibit was open to members only, and we got a sneak peek. Children were having a great time playing with cardboard bricks; constructing with wooden blocks; and playing at the water station. Julia Connolly, the new Executive Director of Hands-on-House, gave our editor a tour and explained how the Clubhouse will bring STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) activities to the museum, including:

Story Stretchers:  The museum’s open-ended, story-based programs with follow-up Clubhouse activities, designed for children ages 2-5, accompanied by an adult.

STEAM Explorers: Brain Building in Progress:  Curiosity, creativity and discovery for children ages 3-5, accompanied by an adult, where learning and fun go hand-in-hand as they explore the concepts of STEAM.

Weekend WOW Program: Hands-on STEAM learning experiences for children ages 5-10. Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math activities will be combined to spark imagination, thinking ability, and problem solving essential for the development of young minds.

The first Weekend Wow program will be the “Robot Factory” on Sunday, March 12, featuring some art, some science, and lots of imagination to playdough and kid-safe electric circuits into robo-creations.

Participation in any of the Clubhouse activities is included with the regular Hands-on-House admission, although pre-registration is strongly recommended for the Weekend WOW programs.
