LEGO® Themed Classes, LEGO® Robotics Classes, Camps, Birthday Parties, and more in Lancaster

At Snapology we believe that children are meant to learn through play. When children are engaged in interactive, hands-on learning activities, their creativity flourishes and they show an increased interest in school.  We help your child grow up with a thirst for knowledge. How do we do it? Snapology engages children ages 1-14 using LEGO® bricks, K’Nex and technology. While the kids are having fun with familiar toys, laptops and iPads, we sneak in the learning. Shh, don't tell them it's educational!

Snapology is the premier partner for STEAM programs, offering year-round programs in schools,  community facilities, homes and in our Discovery Center. Kids have so much fun in our programs that they don’t even realize they’re learning!

Mobile S.T.E.A.M. lab

Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead

The Snapology Mobile S.T.E.A.M. Lab is a mobile classroom & Discovery Center! We bring the FUN and education directly to children ages 3-14 in a full-size refurbished charter bus. Parents and educators LOVE the convenience of the SNAPOLOGY BUS and children have a blast learning and playing.

WHAT CAN I DO ON THE BUS?


We can conduct your choice of Snapology classes, workshops, creative play and birthday parties on the SNAPOLOGY BUS. The bus can be set up for either creative play or structured classroom activities, including our robotics, coding, engineering, science or fun-themed programs. It’s up to you. You pick the Snapology activity and we’ll bring the bus ready for that activity.

WHEN WILL THE BUS ARRIVE?


We try to arrive 10-15 minutes before your Snapology activities are scheduled to start. Upon our arrival, one of our staff members will greet you, answer any questions and set up the bus.

WHERE DOES THE BUS PARK?


The Snapology bus can park on the street, driveway or parking lot. There must be 6 parking spots saved when we arrive, and we must not be blocked in by other cars. There also must be a large enough double wide long driveway if not parked on the road or in a parking lot. Driver will assess upon arrival and has final say if it is safe to park. Obstacles like bushes, trees and fences may be a deciding factor. We usually park along the sidewalk in front of your house (school, church, park, etc.). Party hosts typically reserve space for the bus by parking their own cars in that space or marking off the area with cones, chairs or large plastic toys. We need approximately 60 feet of fairly level space to park.

SHOES ON OR OFF?


Shoes are worn at all times for health and safety reasons.

ARE ADULTS ALLOWED ON THE BUS?


One or two adults, caregivers or parents are welcome at the front or back of the bus at any given time. We ask that they remain at the front or back unless special circumstances need to be considered. Additional adults will be permitted for children with special needs at the discretion of the Snapology instructor. It is generally not necessary for any adults to remain on the bus, if they prefer not to do so. The Snapology instructors have been well-trained and educated to care for the children. Caregivers or parents of guests are welcome to come out for pictures at the end of the session or party.

DOES THE BUS RUN YEAR ROUND?


Yes! With an onboard generator powering multiple AC/heating units, we're able to provide a comfortable atmosphere regardless of season!
