WINTER: The GrAd Lab Classes at Fairland ES!

 

The Great Adventure Lab is an after-school science enrichment program.  We’ve taught thousands of kids how to write their first robotics or video game programs (or both!). We do it all with SMALL class sizes with a student-to-adult ratio of 7:1 for most classes. You can find full descriptions, reviews and photos of all our classes and birthday parties at http://thegreatadventurelab.com.


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.


You can read all about our classes and birthday parties  at http://thegreatadventurelab.com.  The site includes plenty of reviews and photos!

 


Here are mini-descriptions of our offerings.  Please see classes for complete details, including photos!  Room numbers TBD. Instructor will send welcome email several days before class.
