Event Details


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 a student to adult ratio of 7:1 or better. 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  The site includes plenty of reviews and photos!

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 offerings.  Please see classes for complete details, including photos!  Room numbers TBD. Instructor will send welcome email several days before class.

Ready to stretch beyond modding and try a powerful programming language? Our students love Scratch, the super-simple drag-and-drop multimedia programming language designed by MIT.  We’ll use basic commands, loops and more to create characters that move, talk, and interact. Each student will build his or her very own game and share it with friends!

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