The Great Adventure Lab is an after-school science enrichment program offering our classes 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 a student to adult ratio of 7:1 for most classes. Our goal is to make science, technology, engineering, and mathematics irresistibly FUN for the next generation.
You can read all about our classes and birthdayparties 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 offerings at Oyster Bilingual School. Room numbers TBD. Instructor will send welcome email several days before class.
