Event Details


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 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 Spring 2014 offerings at Wayside ES. Please follow links for complete details, including photos!  Room numbers TBD. Instructor will send welcome email several days before 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! 

Areas of exploration: robotics, programming, logic.  1 instructor, 1 parent aide. Six 60 min meetings, once per week  $110 per student ($125 with the GrAd Lab Aide),  Min 11/ max 12 students.
