Register now for our classes at your school! If we're not at your school, invite us!

Grades 4-5 or 6-8.

The Great Adventure Lab uses an m3d printer in its 3-D Design classes for grades 4 to 8 in the Washington DC metro areaYes! We have girls in our classes and are working on ways to get more of them into our classes!!

Students will sharpen their spatial awareness as we learn how to use 3-D software to bring their ideas to life! We’ll learn to draw in two dimensions, and then change those drawings into 3-D objects using tools including extrusion, rotation, mirroring and more. Learning these skills now will make it easier for students when they study geometry in high school.

We’ll also bring our own 3-D printer to class to play with and print some of our simpler objects.

Already took this class? No problem – try 3D Challenge (same format and pricing as below), where our instructors set weekly challenges for you to design and/or help you work on a long-term project of your choice.

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!

My son R. came home incredibly excited about his first meeting. He’s always loved Legos and has an affinity for science, math and engineering. He said this is the best activity he’s ever done.
