Thanks for a great class this winter! W. has really enjoyed learning Scratch through Great Adventure Lab at KP. W. is psyched to show his game at the KP Science Fair in April!
Thank you so much for a great class. My son J. loved it!
Thank you for sending the wonderful updates-H. absolutely loves the class. I am sorry it will be over so soon!
I just wanted to say how much my boys have both enjoyed this Robotics class, they look forward to it every Thursday, keep up the good work!
Thanks for the recap and the great suggestions on where to go. J. continues to love the class, asking me after each one when he gets to go again. Thanks for your great work!
K. has been loving robotics. Thanks so much for all you do!
Thank you for the pictures of the robotics class just completed at NPS. My son D. absolutely loved it. We hope you will be offering more classes there.
Thank you for the updates. It’s great to be able to learn more about what’s happening in these sessions. J. was showing us yesterday what he learned on the software we downloaded to one of our iPads – he’s having a great time.
Thanks so much! J. is loving your class.
Thank you for all of the detailed information about each class along with pictures! My child is really enjoying it.
Thanks so much for your fun and thought-provoking classes. N. loves them.
It was a great class
and I am happy everything went so smoothly on the first day.
The kids loved it!
-Mary Gregory, after school activities coordinator.
A. is very excited to show me the program next week. He has enjoyed the class!
My son J. loves the class.
What an exciting way to learn!
In J.’s spare time, he has gone on his iPad and created some projects on his own.
I don’t think any of the previous [afterschool] instructors have sent emails about the classes so this is extremely helpful!
I really appreciate it.
My daughter B. loved the first robotics class! Thanks again.
My son was thrilled about this class before it started and was even more excited after class today. He had a great time, had lots of information to share with me and my husband afterwards and he is excited about next week and what you will all do.
I really enjoy reading about these sessions and I know T. is enjoying the projects. Thanks for bringing this program to the school!
My son, J. had a wonderful time on Monday. He was protesting going before the first class, but I knew he’d love it since he’s constantly doing experiments (much to the detriment of my spice drawer) at home. He did love it and he can’t wait for next time.
I just want to thank you for doing such a great job with the young engineers class. C. has come home VERY excited
about her activities at young engineers. She says you are a really great teacher
, and from her project descriptions, I can tell this is true. She is learning and understanding a great deal
about structure, planning, and design. This is a fun and engaging
program for [my daughter]. Thank you.
Thanks for teaching this class! H. came home so excited about it – it was the highlight of her week. She already showed us the Scratch website and helped her sister create a sprite and background. It sounds like a great intro to computer programming.
I really had fun building the spinning top. It was so fun. I loved building it , but I loved playing with it too. Can’t wait until next class.😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀
Thank you so much for everything! I know T. learned a lot and had a ton of fun!
My daughter S. absolutely loves this class
and we were all very impressed with the professional program, great updates and fun projects
the kids worked on. She is eager to sign-up for the next one!
Thank you for all the work you did with the kids. Really very inspiring!
My son, A., absolutely loves this class and has asked to continue it. What are the options for after school or weekend classes going forward?
Well done! I really appreciate what you are doing. V. is very enthusiastic about this class. He tells me about it every time.
Thank you very much. A. enjoyed so much. We hope to retire once he creates the next big app/game.
My daughter absolutely loved it ! She shared the great news about her first session and looks forward to the next meeting!
Thank you for your time and email updates. [My daughter] L. really enjoyed the Lego’s class with you! We plan on signing her up for next class …
M. couldn’t stop talking about the class last night. He is so excited about the new Legos! Thank you for taking the time to send the amazing description below. We are looking forward to hearing more from M. – and you!
Very happy to have passionate people about science and engineering like you teaching our son K. about robotics – he’s a budding engineer and I am sure he will learn a great deal.
My son J. had a GREAT time. Thank you! Very excited for this opportunity for him!
D. … really enjoys the class!”
E. has been sick but hopefully will be able to rejoin the class this week because he is enjoying it so much. Thank you.”
Thank you so much for a great day. B. hasn’t stopped talking about his Robotics class since he got home! Excellent work!
Thanks so much! My daughter R. really enjoyed the class!
Thank you very much for teaching all these interesting and fun concepts to the children. S. loved your class!
Thank you! You are doing great work with our students!

Editor’s note: The Great Adventure Lab offers afterschool programming at Parkland Middle School five days a week. We provide Engineering on Mondays, Robotics on Tuesday, Video Game Programming on Wednesdays, 3-D Design on Thursdays and Hands-on Science projects on Fridays.
Thank you for a great class. My son, A., definitely enjoyed himself and gave us a full report each week on the activities of the class. He is sad to see it end and hopes to meet up with you in a future class.
I can’t tell you how much [my daughter] S. loves the class! Her only complaint is that the class is too short.
Thanks for sending these terrific and detailed updates! It helps me understand quite a bit. [My son] is enjoying your class very much.
Thanks for this update. When I got home from a business trip, L. could not wait to tell me that he ‘lit a light bulb with batteries and play dough’… he liked it. Great work.
Thanks for the emails and great interaction ! It’s nice to hear the updates and correlate with their progress! I can tell you that K. is really enjoying the class!
[My son] said he loved it! … He said the class was awesome (his words!) and that the instructor was very nice and he had a lot of fun. He can’t wait to go back next Tuesday. 🙂
This is a fantastic update. Thank you so much! I can’t get [my son] to tell me a whole lot so this helps me to ask more specific questions versus ‘how was the class?’ He really enjoyed the class a lot.
This is a fantastic update. Thank you so much! I can’t get Kaveesh to tell me a whole lot so this helps me to ask more specific questions versus ‘how was the class?’ He really enjoyed the class a lot.
Thanks for the detailed description of the class and the fun pictures. I really appreciate the time you took to write. It will be fun to talk to our son about the different types of gears. At the same time, we (the parents) learn, too. He had a great time and is looking forward to next week!
I am so impressed by the Lego Robotics class. While on a field trip, [my daughter] pointed to a moving contraption and said, “The gears make the arms move.” I asked, “How to do know that?” She replied, “We learned about gears in Lego class.” Wow! Thanks for making Legos and engineering fun and connecting it to the world around us.
Thank you for sending these email updates out, it’s great to hear what [my children] are doing each Wednesday.
We appreciate your time and enthusiasm.
Thanks! O. loved the class, and is excited to come back.
Thanks for the email last night; [My daughter] loves the class and we are looking forward to the next few classes.
Thank you. [My daughter] loved it today!
The first thing A. did at pick-up today was to open his backpack so he could show me what he made in class–it was the highlight of our evening at home, too! I look forward to seeing more projects and talking to him about the class in the coming weeks.
My son, a second-grader at Murch in DC, is loving his Lego Robotics class … He had been reluctant at first to try the class, but now he talks about it all week long and looks forward to every Tuesday. Well done!
Thanks so much for such a detailed run through of the class. [My son] had a great first introduction …
I don’t know what else he teaches, but the kids absolutely LOVE him. I’ve had two parents approach me about his class just in the past week.
It was a great pleasure watching you and the kids launch all of the rockets. I loved that squeal of excitement after every launch, which never got old for anyone there, including the parents. Thank you for making science so much fun!
I appreciate the measures you take to ensure my son’s, as well as the other children with food allergies, well being.
I want to share what a wonderful job [your instructor] did … I was especially impressed with the manner in which he worked to make the class inclusive and meaningful for a student with special needs.
J. is so excited about this class! Thank you for the updates. He now has decided he wants to be a robotics engineer 🙂
Thank you so much! Thank you for the pictures, also, and for letting my son B. join the last class. He enjoyed it and P. did, too!”
