About

The Great Adventure Lab is an after-school science enrichment program that runs in 50+ schools in the D.C. area. We’ve taught thousands of kids how to write their first robotics programs or video game programs (or both!). This is the start of our fourth school year!


We do it all with SMALL class sizes (adult-student ratio = 6:1) and highly skilled teachers, many of whom have or still work as scientists or engineers. Our goal is to make science, technology, engineering and mathematics irresistibly FUN for the next generation. Kids leave our classes demanding MORE!


You can read all about our classes and birthday parties on our website: http://www.thegreatadventurelab.com. Our site includes plenty of reviews, photos and links to videos from our classes!  


We are an LLC based in Silver Spring, MD. We are fully insured and our instructors have passed background checks including FBI and state fingerprinting. 

 


Here are mini-descriptions of our Winter 2014 offerings at Carderock Springs ES. Please follow links for complete details, including photos! Room numbers TBD. We will send you a welcome email several days before the first class.

Took our Lego Robotics class and want more? And more of a challenge? Or are you in 4th or 5th grade, ready to launch into robotics with no previous experience? This class is for you. Instead of working with step-by-step building directions and sample programs, we’ll start each class with a programming challenge set by our instructors. Then we’ll use Lego robotics kits to design bots to go with our programs. We’ll build catapults, crash-avoidance vehicles, hexbug nano catchers and more!  


*3rd grade prerequisite: Lego Robotics 1

 

Areas of exploration: robotics, programming, logic.  1 instructor, 1 aide. Eight 60 min meetings, once per week  $135 per student,  Min 11/ max 12 students.  The GrAd Lab provides one netbook and one robotics kit for each pair of students.
