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




Intro to Robotics A, Grades 1-2

Thu 3:40-4:40 pm
Sep 28, Oct 5, 12, 19, 26, Nov 2, 16, 30, Dec 7, 14


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!
