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 a student to adult ratio of 7:1 or better. 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 reviews and photos!


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 offerings.  Please see classes for complete details, including photos!  Room numbers TBD. Instructor will send welcome email several days before class.

All different projects if you took Lego Robotics with us at Garrett Park last year.

Learn to build and program Lego Robots, using gears, levers, sensors and software! Start out with suggested programs, then learn to troubleshoot and design your own!


Areas of Exploration: Robotics, Programming, Logic.

(NO class Nov. 11 and 25)


We’ll start each class with a storybook and then do hands-on science

experiments to test and recreate story elements! For instance, when we read Jon Scieszka's The True Story of The 3 Little Pigs students test the power of wind versus our own construction techniques! We’ll also launch model planes, build and erupt volcanoes, and make our own “oobleck” (a non-Newtonian fluid—similar to slime)!


Storybook Science classes A, B, C and D follow the same format with new books and experiments. Classes may be taken in any order but may not be repeated.  

Areas of Exploration: Aerodynamics, Biology, Physics, Geology, Paleontology, Chemistry, Engineering

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