The Great Adventure Lab (formerly Adventures with Robots) 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 irresistably 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 Fall 2013 offerings at French Maternal School Please follow links for complete details, including photos! Room numbers TBD. Instructor will send welcome email several days before class.
