About US

The Scientist Factory is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization which provides high quality, interactive STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) learning opportunities for students and school districts that have traditionally not had proportionate access to high quality, out-of-school-time (OST) STEM enrichment learning. We offer after-school enrichment program and summer camps. Our method of content delivery is that the learner's experience should engage multiple intelligence and senses, with emphasis on personal interaction with ideas. 

Our Program

The Scientist Factory employs a creative, hands-on methodology to teaching young students about science’s biggest questions. Our programs provide insight into all of the major fields of science. Programs are designed to complement a student's in-school STEM curriculum and to expand upon their knowledge. 

We intend for our programs to be immersive, with emphasis on individual discovery.  Our presentation of content does not pressure students to memorize facts, but instead encourages them to understand ideas and consider how they pertain to the world. Scientist Factory programs stimulate multi-sensory engagement with STEM topics and are presented in a small group learning environment to increase the amount of individual attention paid to each student’s interests and inquiries.

Our impact as an organization is possible thanks to the generosity of our donors, partners, members and volunteers, all of whom enable us to empower young learners. Read more about how you can make a difference...

Programs

Summer Camp

image16

This year, Lab Ratz Science Club is sponsoring summer camp to benefit The Scientist Factory! Students enrolled in this summer camp can expect the same great programming as always from Lab Ratz's summer camps, and their participation will enable more kids to experience really fun science! Proceeds from camp will go to run STEM workshops for underprivileged youth in Allegheny County during the school year. 

For grades 1 – 7. 

The Scientist Factory 2020 Summer Camp!  

Information about the 2020 summer program will be coming soon! Check back in February for more information.  

Don’t miss out on setting-off controlled reactions, building rockets,  designing rovers, mixing chemicals, using  lab quality microscopes, dissecting cow eyes, sharks, frogs and so much more!

After School Club

Our exciting after school program meets once a week for five weeks. 

Each topic can be geared to either elementary (K-5) or middle (6-8) school students, with different experiments and instruction methods employed specifically to reach students of different ages. 


All programs can be customized to fit any schools needs. We also cover every aspect of the Sciences!

Assembly and Olympiads

Looking for a short program for a small group? Or, perhaps you need a guest speaker for a multiple day Science Olympiad. We will bring the Lab Ratz Science Program to your school for a classroom visit! (Prices vary based on group size, program length and topic {From $3-$10/student/hour.}) 

SCIENCE OLYMPIAD 

Our Science Olympiad programs are truly the best in town. Nobody else does what we do, with the excitement, energy and education that our team of experts will bring to your school. Our Olympiad Workshops are designed as a station for the students to rotate through in teams. Each workshop can last anywhere between 20 and 60 minutes, depending on your scheduling requirements. Choose from one of our popular prepared topics or select your own topic and let the Lab Ratz design a workshop that fits your curriculum. All of our Science Olympiad topics are age-appropriate for students of all ages and abilities.

Biology Camp 2020



TSF- Potter and Potions 

This year, we are diving into the Scientific world of Harry Potter. Students will see that magic is just science we haven’t figured out yet. Learn about mixing chemicals to create new and amazing reactions. Controlling insects by manipulating their neurons. Join this summer as we embark on a magical journey while using real science. 



Physics Camp 2020



The Scientist Factory and the Holographic Black holes 

This are about to get weird, as we take a closer look at Holographic Black holes, parallel worlds, and the quantum state. Join us this summer as we explore the wonders of black holes.
