Youth Festival!

May 27, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm


NOTICE: Due to the weather, Youth Fest has been moved to Waynesboro Area Middle School, 702 E 2nd Street, Waynesboro, PA 17268

The theme for this year is Full STEAM Ahead—
(STEAM = Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math)

Geared for kids of all ages, the event features a variety of workshops, demonstrations, activities, and entertainment throughout the day, including a performance by the Waynesboro Children’s Theatre Troupe.

“This year we have fun and exciting ways to explore the world of physics and how it affects our everyday lives,” said Jessica Watson, the institute’s assistant director. “Kids will enjoy an interactive experience that is fun and educational.

In keeping with the theme, the featured guest entertainer, Arjun Shah from Mobile Ed Productions, presents Forces and Motion, a program demonstrating basic physics with fun experiments using eggs and glasses, balloons, a falling cup, spinning plates and a bicycle wheel.

Kids will explore gravity, centripetal force, Sir Isaac Newton’s three laws of motion, and more with lively demonstrations including the classic tablecloth pull and even a rocket launch!

Specialty “playshops” tie in the theme with all sorts of fun activities. Check out the Youth Fest flier, and the slate of fun activities and performances!
