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!). This is the start of 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 irresistibly FUN for the next generation. Kids leave our classes demanding MORE!
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 2014 offerings at Hayden Academy. Please follow links for complete details, including photos! Room numbers TBD. We will send you a welcome email several days before the first class.

Areas of Exploration: Robotics, Programming, Logic.
This is our core class in which beginners learn to build and program LEGO® robots using LEGO® Education's award-winning WeDo robotics and programming software. Students follow step-by-step on-screen instructions to build their own robots and a suggested program. Students who are ready can develop more complicated programs involving motion or tilt sensors.
Areas of Exploration: Engineering, Physics.
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!
