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!). 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. 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 http://thegreatadventurelab.com. 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.
Here are mini-descriptions of our Spring 2015 offerings at Wayside ES. Please follow links for complete details, including photos! Room numbers TBD. Instructor will send welcome email several days before class.

3D Design (NEW!)
Mar 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, Apr 13, 20, 27
Students may not repeat this class. Students must be in specified grade range.
Areas of Exploration: Design, Programming, Logic.
Course Structure and Fees: 2 instructors. Eight 60-min. meetings, once per week. $175 per student plus $30 materials fee per student. Min. 9 /max. 10 students.
During this eight week course, we will show students how to render ideas in three dimensions. We’ll learn how to turn planes into rectangular solids, circles into cylinders! We’ll rotate, extrude and more! After learning the basics, campers will sketch their ideas and use their new skills to render those ideas into their very own, 3-D, printable designs. Each child will take home a USB drive with their own designs, as well as instructions on where to get them printed.
The ability to turn ideas into real-life objects will thrill our students, but beware: they may come home asking for a 3-D printer of their own.
