Engineers need to be problem solvers with plenty of creativity and imagination. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in Ontario, there's never been a better time for budding engineers to enhance these skills — and have a blast doing it! We know how kids love to tinker with toys, gadgets and other devices, so we focus our sessions around real mechanical and architectural challenges. Working with a buddy, your child will build and test new structures every week, mastering 21st century STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) as they go. After all, learning doesn't feel like a frustration when it's a lot of fun at the same time!
What to Expect at Sylvan
Your local Sylvan in Ontario makes learning personal with classes of no more than 12 students and a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1. We also blend a variety of collaborative activities with different self-guided tasks, helping kids stay motivated with a range of proven learning techniques.
Let's Get Hands-On
We think there's no better way to understand engineering concepts and principles than by using them to solve real-life challenges. That's why our students design and build LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures each and every week. And they don't only build objects: they also learn how to test them, compete in friendly classroom competitions, and redesign their creations using all the principles they've mastered. In other words, we're here to support, engage and excite the young engineer, mechanic or architect in your life — so don't be surprised if bridges, race cars and other projects become the topic of conversation in your home!
Our fun, creative Engineering courses in Ontario feature:
- Hands-on sessions: Many of our programs are based around the latest interactive, app-based learning — but this is all about getting practical and learning by doing.
- STEM-first learning: The modern world needs people with modern skills, so there's no better time for your child to start building a skill set fit for the 21st century.
- Teamwork: Collaborative tasks help students learn how to work together and communicate more effectively.
- Email updates: We'll send you an email after each session with photos and summaries, as well as a preview of upcoming projects.
