Engineering demands not only strong problem-solving abilities, but also lots of creativity and imagination. With engineering courses in Nova Scotia from Sylvan, it's a great time for budding engineers to work on these skills — and have an unforgettably fun experience as they do so! We know how kids dismantle toys, gadgets and other devices (and put them back together… hopefully!), so we design our sessions to explore real-world architectural and mechanical challenges. Your child will team up with a buddy to build, test and optimize various objects and structures every week, mastering critical 21st century STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) along the way. After all, learning doesn't feel like a frustration when it's a lot of fun at the same time!
Discover the Sylvan Difference
With a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1 — and no more than 12 students per class — your local Sylvan centre in Nova Scotia 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.▼
We Make Learning More Hands-On
Getting hands-on with real-world engineering challenges is the best way to master the fundamentals. That's why our students design and build LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures each and every week. And they don't only build them: they also test them, enter them into friendly competitions and redesign them using the new principles they've learned. In other words, you can expect us to guide and engage the aspiring architect, engineer or mechanic in your life — and you can also expect bridges, race cars and other exciting projects to dominate conversations in your home!
Creative learning starts here! Our Engineering courses in Nova Scotia feature:
- Hands as well as minds: Interactive, app-based learning is great, but this program is all about getting hands-on — and learning by doing.
- Emphasis on STEM: The modern world demands modern skills, so now is the time for your child to develop vital 21st century competencies.
- Teamwork: Students work with buddies, learning how to collaborate and build strong personal communication skills.
- Regular updates: We'll email you after each session with photos, summaries and a sneak peek of next week's project.
