With Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Kitchener 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. Watch your child’s creativity flourish and confidence soar as he or she teams up with a partner to build these cool structures and participates in fun games and friendly competitions with other students. It’s a fantastic way for your child to learn how to problem-solve just like an engineer and get equipped with 21st century skills in the process!
An Education Designed for the 21st Century
Beyond being big on fun, our Engineering programs in the Kitchener region are also designed to equip your child with valuable STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) abilities. Through creative activities, immersive learning and group collaboration, your child will build valuable problem solving and critical thinking competencies that can make a lasting impact both academically and personally!▼
