About

The Great Adventure Lab is an after-school science enrichment program offering our classes 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 a student to adult ratio of 7:1 or better. 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 reviews and photos!

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 offerings.  Please see classes for complete details, including photos!  Room numbers TBD. Instructor will send welcome email several days before class. 

These activities are not sponsored by, associated with, or endorsed by MCPS or Montgomery County Government.

Intro to Robotics A, Grades 1-2

Tuesdays 4:00-5:00pm
Oct 18, 25, Nov 1, 15, 22, 29, Dec 6



Intro to Robotics A and B  are two independent classes. Same curriculum, different projects.  Take one or both in any order!


Here’s a fun introduction to the world of robotics and mechanical engineering, designed especially for grades 1 and 2.  We’ll learn what programs do and how to write our own.  Each class meeting, we’ll build a different project and then use motors, sensors, and our own programs to bring our creations to life!  Projects include drawbridges, sliding fortress gates, motorcycles that pop wheelies… and more!


Areas of Exploration: Robotics, Programming, Mechanical Engineering

Class Format: Seven 60-min. meetings, once per week.

Tuition: $125 per student; min 11 / max 14 students. Parent aide for full class gets free tuition.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Storybook Science A, Grades K-1

Thursdays 4:00-5:00pm
Oct 20, 27, Nov 3, 17, Dec 1, 8, 15


We’ll start each class with a storybook and then do hands-on science

experiments to test and recreate story elements! For instance, when we read Jon Scieszka's The True Story of The 3 Little Pigs students test the power of wind versus our own construction techniques! We’ll also launch model planes, build and erupt volcanoes, and make our own “oobleck” (a non-Newtonian fluid—similar to slime)!


Storybook Science classes A, B, C and D follow the same format with new books and experiments. Classes may be taken in any order but may not be repeated.  

Areas of Exploration: Aerodynamics, Biology, Physics, Geology, Paleontology, Chemistry, Engineering

Class Format: Seven 60-min. meetings, once per week.

Tuition: $115 tuition plus $30 supply fee per student; min 11 / max 14 students. Parent aide for full class gets free tuition.
