Encourage your child’s imagination to soar with our Engineering programs in Pickering and tap into his or her love of tinkering with gadgets and building structures. Kids in our interactive courses have fun, make new friends and demonstrate their creativity while mastering a variety of important engineering concepts. Your child will pair up with a buddy to work on exciting new projects each week, such as making a LEGO® machine or constructing one of the world’s seven bridge types out of K’NEX® pieces. It’s an awesome way for your child to learn important 21st century skills that can make a big impact in the classroom and beyond!

A Personal Way to Learn
We ensure a maximum class size of 12 students — and a student-to-teacher ratio of no more than 6:1 — which means you can count on Sylvan to provide the personal attention your son or daughter needs to thrive. We also email parents on a regular basis to make sure they understand what kind of projects their children are working on and how much progress is being made. You’ll learn more about your son or daughter’s handiwork, see which STEM concepts have been covered and enjoy a sneak preview of next week’s project. It’s the perfect way to encourage and celebrate your child’s success!
