The Great Adventure Lab (formerly Adventures with Robots) 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!
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 2013 offerings at St. Pat. Please follow links for complete details, including photos! Room numbers TBD. Instructor will send welcome email several days before class.

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 parent aide, seven 60-min meetings, once per week. $115 per student, min 11/ max 12 students. You are welcome to be parent aide. Parent aide gets free tuition. See requirements here. To sign up, be the first one to use this discount code. LE ParentAide
