UPCOMING EVENTS for October

 

FOR GIRLS AND BOYS GRADES K-6

October 3, 2016 (No school for MCPS)

a full day workshop

with optional before- and after- care

Another Monday with no school?  Join The Great Adventure Lab for a day of learning and fun at Flora Singer Elementary School in Silver Spring. (Open to all students!)

In the morning, our youngest Super STEM participants (K-1st) will get to try their hand at Lego Engineering and will build cars that balance on a string.  In the afternoon we will be doing Storybook Science and exploring all things having to do with flight!


Our 2nd-3rd grade group will build and program amazing mazes using Legos. Once the mazes are built, we will let loose a stream of Hexbugs to see how well they complete the challenge.  4th-6th graders will design their own obstacle course to challenge their Lego Mindstorms robots. In the afternoon, both the 2nd-3rd grade and 4th-6th grade groups will turn to electrical engineering to create their own electronic quiz boards.
