With Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Barrie region, learning is fun and exciting! Your child will love getting hands on with a different project every week, like building, testing and modifying a machine or bridge using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. Your child will get those creative juices flowing as he or she teams up with a buddy to build these awesome structures and challenges other teams to friendly games and competitions. Your child will be solving problems just like an engineer in no time — and developing vital 21st century skills too!
