The Great Adventure Lab is an after-school science enrichment program that runs in 50+ schools in the DC area. We are expanding into Northern Chicagoland. 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 Grayslake, IL and 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 Winter 2014 offerings at Avon Center School. Please follow links for complete details, including photos! Room numbers TBD. We will send you a welcome email several days before the first class.
