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 Spring 2015 offerings at Robert Frost MS. Please follow links for complete details, including photos! Room numbers TBD. Instructor will send welcome email several days before class.

Mindstorms students love building robots that can navigate obstacle courses and respond to a number of sensors, including motion, touch, and ultrasonic sensors. We use the LEGO® Mindstorms base kit to master programming basic movements and then progress to more difficult challenges. We build robots that can navigate mazes, shoot ping pong balls, and more!
