Successful engineers aren't just problem solvers: they have creativity and imagination. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in Manitoba, now is the time for future engineers to develop these important skills — and have fun with new friends as they do so! 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, there's no reason why learning can't be fun and engaging!
The Sylvan Experience
With no more than 12 students in each class and a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1, you can expect a personal and attentive learning experience at your local Sylvan in Manitoba. To that personal attention we add a mix of collaborative tasks and self-directed activities, helping to motivate and engage kids with a variety of proven learning techniques.
Engaging Young Minds and Hands
Getting hands-on with real-world engineering challenges is the best way to master the fundamentals. Using LEGO® and K'NEX®, our students conceive and build new machines and structures every week. And the building part is only the start: students learn how to test their creations, entering them in friendly contests against competing teams and implementing the new design principles they've mastered. Very simply, our goal is to guide and motivate your budding engineer, mechanic or architect — so you shouldn't be surprised when race cars, bridges and other engaging projects become your son or daughter's preferred topic of conversation!
Our Engineering courses in Manitoba focus on creativity, and also feature:
- Practical tasks: We understand how to deliver the very latest app-based learning, but this program is all about learning by doing.
- STEM teaching: As STEM skills become increasingly important in the modern world, now is the time for your child to start developing strong 21st century competencies.
- Teamwork: Buddying up to take on challenges, students learn how to work together and enhance their personal communication skills.
- Weekly updates: We'll email you photos and summaries after each session, as well as a peek at next week's project.
