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.


 

Storybook Science A, Grades K-1

Wed 3:30-4:30pm
Oct 3, 10, 17, 24, Nov 14, 28, Dec 5, 12

We’ll start each class with a storybook and then do hands-on science

experiments to test and recreate story elements! For instance, when we read Jon Scieszka's The True Story of The 3 Little Pigs students test the power of wind versus our own construction techniques! We’ll also launch model planes, build and erupt volcanoes, and make our own “oobleck” (a non-Newtonian fluid—similar to slime)!

Storybook Science classes A, B, C and D follow the same format with new books and experiments. Classes may be taken in any order but may not be repeated.  

Areas of Exploration: Aerodynamics, Biology, Physics, Geology, Paleontology, Chemistry, Engineering

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

Tuition: $145 tuition plus $34 supply fee per student; min 11 / max 14 students. Parent aide for full class gets free tuition.


 

 

Chemistry, Grades 2-3

Wed 3:30-4:30pm
Oct 3, 10, 17, 24, Nov 14, 28, Dec 5, 12

Let’s have some safe, hands-on fun with chemistry! We’ll start experimenting with states of matter and density and then move on to chemical reactions, including ones that produce gas — think volcanoes and alka-seltzer rockets! Before each experiment, we’ll talk about what might happen, write down our hypotheses, conduct our experiments and record our observations and conclusions. This is a super way to learn the scientific method while having lots of fun.

Areas of Exploration: Biology, Wildlife

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

Tuition: $150 tuition plus $34 materials fee per student; min 11/ max 14 students. Parent aide for full class gets free tuition.

 


Robo Challenge Machines, Grades 4-5

Wed 3:30-4:30pm
Oct 3, 10, 17, 24, Nov 14, 28, Dec 5, 12

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:  $155 per student; min 11 / max 14 students. Parent aide for full class gets free tuition.
