About

 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!). 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!

You can read all about our classes and birthday parties on our website: http://www.thegreatadventurelab.com. Our site includes plenty of reviews, 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 Fall 2014 offerings at Oyster Bilingual 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.
