About

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 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.

Intro to Robotics A, Grades 1-2

Fri 3:30-4:30pm
Oct 19, 26, Nov 2, 9, 16,  30, Dec 7

Intro to Robotics A and B  are two independent classes. Same curriculum, different projects.  Take one or both in any order!

Here’s a fun introduction to the world of robotics and mechanical engineering, designed especially for grades 1 and 2.  We’ll learn what programs do and how to write our own. Each class meeting, we’ll build a different project and then use motors, sensors, and our own programs to bring our creations to life!  Projects include drawbridges, sliding fortress gates, motorcycles that pop wheelies… and more!

Areas of Exploration: Robotics, Programming, Mechanical Engineering

 Class Format: Seven 60-min. meetings, once per week.

Tuition: $135 per student; min 11 / max 14 students. Parent aide for full class gets free tuition.

 


 

Lego Robotics A / Robo Challenge Machines Combo, Grades 3-5, combining the two classes listed below.

Fri 3:30-4:30pm
Oct 19, 26, Nov 2, 9, 16,  30, Dec 7

 

Lego Robotics A

Lego Robotics A and B are two independent classes. Same curriculum, different projects.  Take one or both in any order!

Learn to build and program Lego Robots, using gears, levers, sensors and software! Start out with suggested programs, then learn to troubleshoot and design your own!

Areas of Exploration: Robotics, Programming, Logic.

Robo Challenge Machines

Our Robo Challenge classes are ideal for students who want more of a challenge. No more step-by-step directions and sample programs. Instead, we start each class with a programming challenge, then design bots to go with our programs. We’ll build and program cars, hexbug catchers, and more! Our Robo Challenge Contraptions class follows the same format, but with all different projects, including a marble shooter!

Areas of Exploration:  Independent Problem Solving, Robotics, Programming, Logic, Mechanical Engineering.

 

Class Format:  Seven 60-min. meetings, once per week.

Tuition:  $135 per student; min 11 / max 14 students. Parent aide for full class gets free tuition.
