Event Details



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!). We also teach science, engineering, electronics ... and more! We do it all with SMALL class sizes (adult-student ratio = 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 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.
