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.
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 Fall 2014 offerings at Montgomery Knolls ES. Please follow links for complete details, including photos! Room numbers TBD. Instructor will send welcome email several days before class.
These activities are not sponsored by, associated with, or endorsed by MCPS or Montgomery County Government.

Mythbusters isn’t just for big kids. Each storybook science class begins with a different story that challenges our kindergarten and first grade scientists to conduct hands-on science experiments. Students test the truthfulness of a story, solve problems in a story, and recreate story elements. For instance, when we read Jon Scieszka’s The True Story of The 3 Little Pigs students test the power of wind versus our own construction techniques—can wind really blow down a house? Kids are also inspired to build earthworm habitats, volcanoes, and “oobleck” (a non-Newtonian fluid—similar to slime)!
