Engineers need strong technical abilities and know-how, as well as creative problem-solving skills and plenty of imagination. With engineering courses in Ontario from Sylvan, it's a great time for budding engineers to work on these skills — and have an unforgettably fun experience as they do so! We appreciate that kids like to tinker with toys, gadgets and other devices to figure out how they work, so our sessions emphasize real challenges in mechanics and architecture. Every week, students buddy up with friends to build structures, test them, and rebuild them better, learning vital STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) as part of the process. After all, kids engage in learning a lot more when it happens to be fun and enjoyable too!
We're Here to Make a Real Difference
Learning becomes a personal and attentive experience at your local Sylvan 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.
Getting Hands-On with Important Concepts
There's no better way to learn engineering concepts than by applying them to real-life challenges. That's why we present our students with new LEGO® and K'NEX® building activities every week. And once these creations have been built, students test them, enter them in friendly contests and tweak their design to include the new ideas and principles they've 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!
Let's get creative! Our Engineering courses in Ontario feature:
- STEM-based learning: Now is the time for your child to start developing competencies that are increasingly important in the 21st century.
- Hands as well as minds: We know when to integrate the latest app-based learning methods, but this program is all about getting hands-on.
- Teamwork: Students work together to complete tasks and improve their personal communication skills.
- Regular emails: We know you want to stay up to date with your child's progress, so we'll email you photos and summaries after each session — as well as a special look ahead to the next project.
