About

The Great Adventure Lab is an after-school science enrichment program that runs in 50+ schools in the DC 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 Ashburton 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.

Meeting dates:   Jan 31, Feb 7, 14, 21, Mar 7, 14, 21

 

Using Lego Education’s Simple Machines set, we’ll learn the mechanical engineering concepts behind levers, gears, pulleys and more.  Each week we’ll build a new project.  Get ready for a wild amusement park ride, a go-cart and of course... a catapult. After learning the engineering concepts and building the machines, we encourage students to improvise on their designs, just like we do in our robotics classes!


Areas of exploration include: engineering, simple machines, and physics.  1 instructor, 1 aide, seven 60 min meetings, once per week, $115 per student, min 11/ max 12 students.
