Here at The GrAd Lab, we like to mix  it up from time to time by offering some cool events where you can try out our classes, meet our instructors and some of the rest of our team … and have a great time!

Our most recent event, Kids’ Night Out – Space Engineers at Luxmanor E.S., was sold out! The kids had a great time learning about the Mars Rover, Curiosity, from a NASA engineer, and then had fun bulding and launching straw rockets and playing on a real hovercraft!

We are planning more events this summer featuring our hovercraft… and volcanoes! Stay tuned to this page for more details. In the meantime …


Here’s a list of our upcoming events,

along with our top picks for STEM events in our area.
