Event Details


The Great Adventure Lab is an after-school science enrichment program that runs in 50+ schools in the DC area. We’ve taught thousands of kids how to write their first robotics programs or video game programs (or both!). This is our fourth school year!

We do it all with SMALL class sizes (adult-student ratio = 6:1) and highly skilled teachers, many of whom have or still work as scientists or engineers. Our goal is to make science, technology, engineering and mathematics irresistably FUN for the next generation. Kids leave our classes demanding MORE!

You can read all about our classes and birthday parties on our web site Our site includes plenty of reviews, 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. 


Mindstorms 1 - Beginner class


Areas of Exploration: Programming, Robotics, Logic.

Course Structure and Fees: 1 instructor. Seven 90-min. meetings, once per week. $200 per student. Min. 5 / max. 10 students.

Mindstorms students love building robots that can navigate obstacle courses and respond to a number of sensors, including motion, touch, and ultrasonic sensors. We use the LEGO® Mindstorms base kit to master programming basic movements and then progress to more difficult challenges. We build robots that can navigate mazes, shoot ping pong balls, and more!
