Engineering takes creativity, imagination and great problem-solving abilities. There's never been a better time for future engineers to develop these skills — and have a blast doing it — with Sylvan's Engineering courses in Alberta. Kids love to work out what makes toys, gadgets and devices tick, so our sessions are tailored to explore and examine real mechanical and architectural challenges. Working with a buddy, your child will build and test new structures every week, mastering 21st century STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) as they go. After all, it's so much easier to engage in learning if it happens to be great fun as well!
The Sylvan Experience
With a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1 — and no more than 12 students per class — your local Sylvan centre in Alberta is where learning gets personal. We also combine that one-on-one attention with collaborative activities and self-guided tasks, helping kids stay engaged with a mix of proven learning methods.▼
Getting Hands-On with Important Concepts
The most effective way to understand critical engineering concepts is to use them to overcome real-life challenges. That's why we present our students with new LEGO® and K'NEX® building activities every week. And they don't only build objects: they also learn how to test them, compete in friendly classroom competitions, and redesign their creations using all the principles they've mastered. In other words, the budding mechanic, engineer or architect in your life will always be fully supported, motivated and engaged at Sylvan — so don't be surprised when your son or daughter can't stop talking about bridges, race cars and other exciting hands-on projects!
Creative learning starts here! Our Engineering courses in Alberta feature:
- Emphasis on STEM: As the modern world increasingly relies on people with strong STEM skill sets, it's never too early for your child to start developing 21st century competencies.
- Hands-on learning: Sylvan is no stranger to the very latest advances in interactive, app-based learning — but our Engineering courses are all about learning by doing.
- Collaboration: Students work together to enhance their ability to communicate with others and work as a team.
- Frequent updates: You'll learn about each session thanks to our weekly email updates, which include photos, summaries and a preview of the next project.
