Modern skills in STEM subjects — science, technology, engineering and math — are increasingly important when it comes to career success in and beyond Simcoe. That’s why we’ve designed our after-school STEM programs to be fun and engaging while encouraging kids to stay on track towards in-demand careers. Sylvan EDGE mixes fun and academic mastery with challenges like engineering super structures, programming LEGO® robots and designing original video games. We also realize the importance of collaboration and camaraderie, so we encourage kids to work together and make new friendships as they gain new skills and knowledge.
