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. 

These activities are not sponsored by, associated with, or endorsed by MCPS or Montgomery County Government.

Mondays  4:00-5:30pm Mar 7, 14, 21, Apr 4, 11, 18, 25


Students will sharpen their spatial awareness as we learn how to use 3-D software to bring our ideas to life! Students will design their own objects, which they print on a printer. We’ll also bring our own 3-D printer to class to play with!

Areas of Exploration:  3-D Spatial Visualization, Design,

Class Format: Seven 90-min. meetings, once per week.

Tuition: $195 tuition plus $10 materials fee per student, min 9/ max 10 students, 1 instructor, 1 aide.

Tuition: $130 per student, min 11 / max 12 students, 1 instructor, 1 aide. Parent aide for full class gets free tuition.

 


 

Storybook Science A, Grades K-1

Thursdays 4:00-5:00pm Mar 10, 17, Apr 7, 14, 21, 28, May 5


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)!

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

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