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 Spring 2015 offerings at Waters Landing ES.  Please follow links for complete details, including photos!  Room numbers TBD. Instructor will send welcome email several days before class.

Lots of people follow recipes for 30 years and still can’t cook. We don’t want that to happen to your budding engineers. In this class, kids learn basic engineering concepts by designing and building cool projects like bridges, egg drops safety-devices, and working catapults that are almost as large as your child!


Class meets indoors, but we’ll periodically venture outside to test out what we build. Each student takes home his or her own catapult.

Lego Engineers students learn and apply mechanical engineering concepts to create a wild amusement park ride, a go-cart, and, of course...a catapult! Students learn the physics behind levers, gears, pulleys, and other simple machines using LEGO® Education’s Simple Machines set.  Lego Engineers classes introduce a new project each week, and students are encouraged to improvise on their designs just like in our robotics classes!
