The Great Adventure Lab teaches Mindstorms robotics to boys and girls grades 4-7.

Students work in pairs. This pic is from a recent Girls Get Science workshop!

Grades 4-7.

Students will have an awesome time building robots that can navigate obstacle courses and respond to a multitude of sensors, including motion, touch, sound … To get an idea of what LEGO® NXT Mindstorms can do, scroll down to the video, by a guy whose creations include a robotic claw and a robotic card dealer.

Our students begin work with the the LEGO® Mindstorms base kit to master the programming of basic movements, and then progress to more difficult challenges. We’ll build robots that can navigate mazes, shoot ping pong balls … and more!


All of our Mindstorms instructors have STEM degrees, and most have worked or still work professionally as engineers or scientists. Read more about our team here.

Tired of having no clue what your kids do in all those clubs? We’re different. A day or two after every class, your instructor will email a note explaining what the class learned in the previous session and what’s next. Sometimes we even include photos and videos!
