Sylvan’s Engineering courses in the Barrie region make learning fun! Your son or daughter will have a great time tackling a new interactive project each week, including building, testing and rebuilding bridges and machines 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!

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 hands-on programs are a fantastic way for your budding inventor to gain a solid grasp of engineering, science and architectural concepts while also igniting his or her imagination and creativity along the way. Parents can join in on the fun too: we send out regular email communication to keep you in the loop every week. We will also provide a preview of the upcoming week’s project so you and your child can gear up for the next cool activity!
