Modern skills in STEM subjects — science, technology, engineering and math — are increasingly important when it comes to career success in and beyond Dartmouth. That’s why we’ve designed our after-school STEM programs to be fun and engaging while encouraging kids to stay on track towards in-demand careers. In fact, Sylvan EDGE offers a unique blend of excitement and academic mastery, whether it's assembling a soaring super structure, coding a LEGO® robot or making an original video game from scratch.

Learn how your child can gain a valuable edge for the future when he or she attends your local Sylvan in Dartmouth.
Unlocking Young Potential
At Sylvan, we believe after-school learning should be about a lot more than repetitive drills and frustrating tasks. We developed our after-school programs to offer innovative learning environments that use the latest technology to combine fun activities with rewarding challenges. The results can’t be denied: kids who attend Sylvan in Dartmouth are more confident in their problem-solving skills, making them better able to reach their potential in and out of the classroom. That’s how we can make a difference.▼

In Dartmouth, Sylvan EDGE Programs Offer:
- Math Edge: Making math interesting and engaging for kids is essential since it is the foundation all STEM subjects are built on. Our brain-exercising activities — like puzzles, brainteasers and progress challenges — will help your child develop solid problem-solving skills he or she needs in and out of the classroom.
- Coding: You can look forward to your child coming home with plenty of exciting stories when you register him or her for our coding program, which includes cool, interactive challenges like building video games, and coming up with computer animations.
