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

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


GRADES 2–4


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. More advanced students 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.


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

Areas of Exploration: Robotics, Programming, Logic, Mechanical Engineering.

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


After school pricing: $125 tuition per student, min 11 / max 12 students,

1 instructor, 1 aide. Parent aide for full class gets free tuition. Use Special code: PA-Lego
