Engineers need to be problem solvers with plenty of creativity and imagination. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in Manitoba, young engineers have a great opportunity to enhance these skills — and have fun while they do it! 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. Every week, your child will partner with a friend to build, test and redesign structures, mastering important STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) along the way. After all, kids find it a lot easier to engage with learning if they’re having fun at the same time!
The Sylvan Experience
Your local Sylvan centre in Manitoba has a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1 — and a maximum class size of 12 students per class —in order to ensure learning is both personal and attentive. We also consolidate that one-on-one attention with a varied assortment of collaborative and independent tasks, helping kids stay engaged (and motivated!) with a blend of learning methods that are proven to be effective.▼
Engaging with practical, hands-on engineering challenges is the most effective way to master the most important concepts. That's why our students design and build LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures each and every week. And the learning doesn't end once building is finished: students also learn how to test their creations, entering them in friendly contests and redesigning them according to the new principles learned. In other words, the future mechanic, architect or engineer in your life is sure to be engaged and excited at Sylvan — just don't be surprised if dinner conversation is dominated by bridges, race cars and other hands-on projects!
Creativity is a defining feature of our Engineering courses in Manitoba, which also include:
- Hands-on sessions: Many of our programs are based around the latest interactive, app-based learning — but this is all about getting practical and learning by doing.
- STEM-first learning: The modern world needs people with modern skills, so there's no better time for your child to start building a skill set fit for the 21st century.
- Teamwork: Collaborative tasks help students learn how to work together and communicate more effectively.
- Email updates: We'll send you an email after each session with photos and summaries, as well as a preview of upcoming projects.
