Event Details


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

Robo Challenge Contraptions and Machines are independent classes. Same curriculum, different projects. Take one or both in either order!

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:  Eight 60-min. meetings, once per week.


Tuition:  $140 per student; min 11 / max 14 students.  Parent aide for full class gets free tuition.
