It takes imagination, problem-solving and a great deal of creativity to be a successful engineer. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in Prince Edward Island, there's never been a better time for budding engineers to enhance these skills — and have a blast doing it! 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. Your child will work with a buddy to build and redesign different structures every week, getting to grips with crucial concepts in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) along the way. After all, learning is so much more engaging when it's a whole lot of fun as well!
The Sylvan Experience
With a maximum of 12 students per class — and a student-teacher ratio of 6:1 — learning is a personal experience at your local Sylvan in Prince Edward Island. We combine that personal attention with team activities and independent tasks, helping kids stay engaged and motivated with a diverse blend of 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 they don't only build them: they also test them, enter them into friendly competitions and redesign them using the new principles they've learned. In other words, the future mechanic, architect or engineer in your life is sure to be engaged and excited at Sylvan — just don't be surprised if dinner conversation is dominated by bridges, race cars and other hands-on projects!
Creativity is a defining feature of our Engineering courses in Prince Edward Island, which also include:
- Handy projects: We know all about app-based learning, but this is all about learning by doing.
- STEM concepts: You can never be too young to start learning vital 21st century competencies.
- Collaboration: Students partner up to take on challenges and develop stronger interpersonal skills.
- Frequent updates: After each session we'll contact you via email with photos, summaries and a brief look ahead to the next project.
