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!). We also teach science, engineering, electronics...and more! We do it all with SMALL class sizes with an adult to student ratio of 6:1. Our goal is to make science, technology, engineering, and mathematics irresistibly FUN for the next generation.

You can read all about our classes and birthday parties at http://thegreatadventurelab.com. The site includes plenty of 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 Fall 2014 offerings at St Patrick Catholic School. Please follow links for complete details, including photos!  Room numbers TBD. Instructor will send welcome email several days before class.

GRADES 3*–5
(3rd grade prerequisite: Lego Robotics 1)

Students may not repeat this class. Students must be in specified grade range.

: Robotics, Programming, Logic.

Course Structure and Fees: 1 instructor, 1 aide. Seven 60-min. meetings, once per week. $125 per student.

Robo Challenge Machines is ideal for students who want more of a challenge
than the LEGO® Robotics class offers. No previous robotics experience is required. Instead of working with step-by-step building directions and sample programs, we start each class with a programming challenge set by our instructors. We then use LEGO® robotics kits to design bots to go with our programs. We build catapults, crash-avoidance vehicles, hexbug nano catchers, and more!

 



Lego Engineers

Sep 17, 24, Oct 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 (Snow Date Nov 5)
