Give Back at the Extraordinary Give

It is time to dig deep and make an impact on the community. The Extraordinary Give is Lancaster County’s largest single day of giving of the year, raising over $31 million for more than 500 organizations over the last 6 years. I want to repeat that, because it’s staggering: in just 6 days TOTAL the Extraordinary Give has raised more than $31,000,000!

This Friday, November 16th, 2018, Lancaster is poised to make this the biggest Extraordinary Give to date, and every dollar donated will be stretched by a pool of cash and prizes from the Lancaster County Community Foundation, Rodgers & Associates, the High Foundation, and the community sponsors!

This year, ParadoxLabs will be supporting the Lancaster Science Factory, who is partnered with Thaddeus Stevens College for a FREE Night of STEM & EXTRAORDINARY FUN. Throughout the year we support the Lancaster Science Factory’s Girls Code Club, that brings young girls into the world of computer programing; opening doors that would otherwise be closed. So if you are free, please come out and help raise funds to make STEM education available to more kids!

Here is the schedule of events


The Lancaster Science Factory will offer FREE ADMISSION from 5pm-8pm. Bring your credit card for the #ExtraGive stations while kids, K-8th grade can enjoy Baxter, a lovable robot that will meet and greet you, and tons of other activities.

Kids STEM Faire events include:

  • Cast your own metal figurine.
  • Help screen print a T-shirt.
  • Build a wooden turkey.
