Engineers need to be problem solvers with plenty of creativity and imagination. Sylvan's Engineering courses in Ontario give budding engineers the chance to build these types of skills — and have a whole lot of fun as they do! Kids love to work out what makes toys, gadgets and devices tick, so our sessions are tailored to explore and examine real mechanical and architectural challenges. Your child will team up with a buddy to build, test and optimize various objects and structures every week, mastering critical 21st century STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) along the way. After all, there's no reason why learning can't be fun and engaging!
We Make a Real Difference
Learning becomes a personal and attentive experience at your local Sylvan centre in Ontario, where classes have no more than 12 students and the maximum student-to-teacher ratio is 6:1. We combine our one-on-one approach with a tailored blend of self-guided and collaborative tasks, helping kids stay interested and motivated with diverse learning methods.▼
Engaging Young Minds and Hands
There's no better way to learn engineering concepts than by applying them to real-life challenges. That's why our students are presented with new and exciting LEGO® and K'NEX® building activities each week. And the learning doesn't end once building is finished: students also learn how to test their creations, entering them in friendly contests and redesigning them according to the new principles learned. Very simply, our goal is to guide and motivate your budding engineer, mechanic or architect — so you shouldn't be surprised when race cars, bridges and other engaging projects become your son or daughter's preferred topic of conversation!
Creativity is a defining feature of our Engineering courses in Ontario, which also include:
- Handy projects: We know all about app-based learning, but this is all about learning by doing.
- STEM concepts: You can never be too young to start learning vital 21st century competencies.
- Collaboration: Students partner up to take on challenges and develop stronger interpersonal skills.
- Frequent updates: After each session we'll contact you via email with photos, summaries and a brief look ahead to the next project.
