Registration Opens July 15, 2015

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 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 birthdayparties  at  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 2015 offerings at Seven Locks 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. Our students learn basic engineering concepts by designing, building and testing bridges, egg drops, catapults and more!

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

Students may not repeat this class and must be in specified grade range.

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