March 19 will mark the official opening of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Stage Exhibit at the Lancaster Science Factory as part of its “Science is Amazing” Festival. The result of a collaborative effort by the central Pennsylvania rock ’n’ roll community — Performance Environment Design Group, Beame, ATOMIC, TAIT, Clair Global, and Control Freak Systems — the exhibit is meant to teach Factory guests about the science and technology behind entertainment.

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Stage is all about putting visitors on stage and behind the scenes. Guests can operate the light board to mix colors or light the stage, take a turn at the sound board to learn about pitch and gain, or be bold and grab the microphone to be a rock star. If the stage is packed, visitors can continue their rock education through the six “Are You Ready to Rock?” stations located throughout the Factory. These stations are meant to show how rock ’n’ roll is all around you, from simple circuits to truss bridges.

“We’re excited that the rock ‘n’ roll community has created this awesome exhibit that allows visitors to immerse themselves in the rock ‘n’ roll experience,” said Emily Landis, executive director of the Lancaster Science Factory. “It offers our guests a backstage pass to the science and technology involved in a rock concert.”

The exhibit will be a permanent install for the Science Factory, with scheduled updates and additions over the coming years to enhance visitors’ experience. Representatives from the creative collective will be present on March 19 to kick things off and visit with attendees. The “Science is Amazing” Festival first started in 2013 and is a free festival open to the public and includes all Science Factory exhibits, plus special science demonstrations, exhibits and activities.

Demonstrations, activities and experiments are for children and their families, involving the children as hand-on participants. All activities are safe for children of all ages with plenty of ‘wow’ factor. The festival will consist of individuals and organizations presenting content related to physical science, engineering, technology or math.

The Lancaster Science Factory is located at 454 New Holland Ave., Lancaster. Learn more at lancastersciencefactory.org.
