Engineers need strong technical abilities and know-how, as well as creative problem-solving skills and plenty of imagination. There's never been a better time for future engineers to develop these skills — and have a blast doing it — with Sylvan's Engineering courses in Ontario. We know how kids dismantle toys, gadgets and other devices (and put them back together… hopefully!), so we design our sessions to explore real-world architectural and mechanical challenges. Each week, your child will buddy up with a friend to learn important STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) by building, testing and redesigning various structures and objects. After all, learning doesn't feel like a frustration when it's a lot of fun at the same time!
We're Here to Make a Real Difference
With a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1 — and no more than 12 students per class — your local Sylvan centre in Ontario is where learning gets personal. We also combine that one-on-one attention with collaborative activities and self-guided tasks, helping kids stay engaged with a mix of proven learning methods.▼
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 building part is only the start: students learn how to test their creations, entering them in friendly contests against competing teams and implementing the new design 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!
Creativity is a defining feature of our Engineering courses in Ontario, which also include:
- Hands as well as minds: Interactive, app-based learning is great, but this program is all about getting hands-on — and learning by doing.
- Emphasis on STEM: The modern world demands modern skills, so now is the time for your child to develop vital 21st century competencies.
- Teamwork: Students work with buddies, learning how to collaborate and build strong personal communication skills.
- Regular updates: We'll email you after each session with photos, summaries and a sneak peek of next week's project.
