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!). 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 Fall 2014 offerings at Cashell 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.

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.


Cancelled due to Low Enrollment 

 

Robo Challenge Machines   Tuesdays 3:10-4:10pm

Sep 16, 23, 30, Oct 7, 14, 21, 28 (Snow Date Nov 18)

3rd GRADE (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.


Robo Challenge Machines is ideal for students who want more of a challenge than the LEGO® Robotics class offers. 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!
