Event Details


The Great Adventure Lab is an after-school science enrichment program. We’ve taught thousands of kids how to write their first robotics or video game programs (or both!).

We also teach science, engineering, electronics ... and more!  We do it all with SMALL class sizes with an adult to student ratio of 6:1 for most classes. (5:1 for more advanced classes, 7:1 for non-robotics classes).  We make science, technology, engineering, and mathematics irresistibly FUN for the next generation.

Here are mini-descriptions of our Winter 2015 offerings at Cabin John MS. Please follow links for complete details, including photos!  Room numbers TBD. Instructor will send welcome email several days before class.

Mindstorms students love building robots that can navigate obstacle courses and respond to a number of sensors, including motion, touch, and ultrasonic sensors. We use the LEGO® Mindstorms base kit to master programming basic movements and then progress to more difficult challenges. We build robots that can navigate mazes, shoot ping pong balls, and more!
