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 for most classes. 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 here.  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.

Intro to Robotics B, Grades 1-2

Mon 6:15-7:15pm
Feb 1, 8, 22, 29, Mar 7, 14, 21

Intro to Robotics A and B  are two independent classes. Same curriculum, different projects.  If you already took A, you can take B without repeating projects. Or you can start with B!


Here’s a fun introduction to the world of robotics and mechanical engineering, designed especially for grades 1 and 2.  We’ll learn what programs do and how to write our own.  Each class meeting, we’ll build a different project and then use motors, sensors, and our own programs to bring our creations to life!  We’ll build crawlerbots, windmills, planes … and more!

Areas of Exploration: Robotics, Programming, Mechanical Engineering

Class Format: Seven 60-min. meetings, once per week.

Tuition: $125 per student, min 11 / max 12 students, 1 instructor, 1 aide. Parent aide for full class gets free tuition.
