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 Winter 2015 offerings at Greenwood ES.  Please follow links for complete details, including photos!  Room numbers TBD. Instructor will send welcome email several days before class.

This is our core class in which beginners learn to build and program LEGO® robots using LEGO® Education's award-winning WeDo robotics and programming software. Students follow step-by-step on-screen instructions to build their own robots and a suggested program. Students who are ready can develop more complicated programs involving motion or tilt sensors. In the final class, we take off the training wheels and challenge students to design, build, and program robots that can achieve a certain task.




Robo Challenge Machines
Mondays 3:15-4:15pm
Jan 12, 26, Feb 2, 9, 23, Mar 2, 9
(Snow Date Mar 16)

 GRADES 3–5 (3rd grade prerequisite: LEGO® Robotics)Students may not repeat this class. Students must be in specified grade range.

 Areas of Exploration: Robotics, Programming, Logic.

 Course Structure and Fees: 1 instructor, 1 aide. Seven 60-min. meetings, once per week. $125 per student.   Min. 11 / max. 12 students.   Parent aide gets free tuition. See parent aide requirements here: http://thegreatadventurelab.com/parent-aides/

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!
