About

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 Fall 2014 offerings at Flora Singer ES. Please follow links for complete details, including photos!  Room numbers TBD. Instructor will send welcome email several days before class.

This class is our SPACE version of Young Engineers. Our projects and activities are designed around challenges that real NASA engineers face, like how to land a rover on Mars without breaking it (not easy--this is the egg drop on steroids!), how to navigate via remote control, and more! Grab your astronaut helmets, since this class will take you OUT of this world!
