The Great Adventure Lab

Note: limited availability.

NEW: Grades 2 to 3

How did Ben Franklin figure out a way to harness electricity, thus making it possible for generations of kids to play all those annoying video games for hours on end? How? By playing around with it!

No, we won’t send your child out with kite and key to play in a lightning storm. We’ve got something almost as fun in mind: making take-home electronics projects, including lemon batteries, quiz boards, burglar alarms and more!

Tired of having no clue what your kids do in all those after school activities? 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!

Thanks for all your hard work with the kids- [My daughter] loved it and is still having fun with the burglar alarm! -Kensington Parkwood E.S. parent
