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. 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 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 Winter 2015 offerings at Ritchie Park ES. Please follow links for complete details, including photos! Room numbers TBD. Instructor will send welcome email several days before class.

Mythbusters isn’t just for big kids. Each storybook science class begins with a different story that challenges our kindergarten and first grade scientists to conduct hands-on science experiments. Students test the truthfulness of a story, solve problems in a story, 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—can wind really blow down a house? Kids are also inspired to build earthworm habitats, volcanoes, and “oobleck” (a non-Newtonian fluid—similar to slime)!
