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 for most classes. (5:1 for more advanced classes, 7:1 for non-robotics classes).


We 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!

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!

GRADES 3-5

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


Areas of Exploration: Engineering, Physics.

Course Structure and Fees: 1 instructor, 1 aide. Seven 60-min. meetings, once per week. $125 plus $30 materials fee per student. Min. 11 / max. 14 students. See parent aide requirements here: http://thegreatadventurelab.com/parent-aides/


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!
