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 Fall 2014 offerings at Cashell ES. Please follow links for complete details, including photos! Room numbers TBD. We will send you a welcome email several days before the first class.

Does your kid dream of writing his or her own video games, creating cartoons, or making animations?
We’ve found a great way to get started: Scratch, the super-simple drag-and-drop multimedia programming language designed by MIT’s Lifelong Kindergarten project. The Great Adventure Lab’s trained instructors can teach your child how to make characters walk, talk, and interact with a keyboard/mouse or other programmed characters. Each student will build his or her own game.
