About

The Great Adventure Lab is an after-school science enrichment program that runs in 50+ schools in the DC area. We’ve taught thousands of kids how to write their first robotics programs or video game programs (or both!). This is 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 irresistably FUN for the next generation. Kids leave our classes demanding MORE!

 

 

You can read all about our classes and birthday parties on our web site 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 Spring 2014 offerings at Private-Ramana. 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. 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.
