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 Bradley Hills 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. 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. (All new projects for our Lego Robotics 1 students!)
Students may not class and must be in specified grade range.
Areas of Exploration: Robotics, Programming, Logic.
Class Format: Six 60-min. meetings, once per week.
After school pricing: $110 tuition per student, min 11 / max 12 students,
1 instructor, 1 aide. Parent aide for full class gets free tuition.
