For kids who love to build structures and figure out how things work, our Engineering programs in Thornhill might be just the thing they need to keep their imaginations engaged. Our interactive courses are a fun and educational way for your child to learn a variety of engineering concepts while firing up his or her creativity. 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 excellent way for your child to learn useful 21st century skills that will come in handy in the classroom and beyond!
Focus on Important STEM Skills
Our Engineering program in Thornhill is designed so that kids don't only have a great time as they design, build and tinker with cool creations — they also get to grips with crucial STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) concepts along the way! Through hands-on sessions, collaborative challenges and wrap-up activities that reinforce learning, your child will also be able to work on those all-important critical thinking and problem solving skills.

Our Personal Approach
Sylvan has a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1 — and a maximum class size of 12 students — so you can expect us to provide the personalized learning experience and one-on-one attention your child 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 get a closer look at your son or daughter’s handiwork, find out what kind of STEM concepts have been explored, and see what's in store for the next session. It’s a great way to celebrate your child’s success and share it with others!
