With Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Barrie region, learning is fun and exciting! Your son or daughter can expect to complete a different hands-on project each week, including designing, testing and tweaking bridges and machines using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. Your child’s creativity will soar to new levels as he or she works with a buddy to put together these unique creations and challenges other students to friendly games and competitions. It’s a fantastic way for your son or daughter to tackle challenges just like an engineer and acquire important 21st century skills along the way!

Is Your Child a Budding Engineer?

From constructing complex structures to tweaking and rebuilding them in order to test out a better solution, your son or daughter will be solving problems like a real engineer in no time! Our immersive courses provide the ideal environment for your aspiring engineer to learn foundational science, architectural and engineering concepts while firing up his or her creativity and imagination throughout the process. Parents won’t be missing out on the fun either: we send regular email communication so you can stay informed of your child’s progress. We also preview the following week’s project via email so you and your child can get excited for the next session!
