Engineering demands not only strong problem-solving abilities, but also lots of creativity and imagination. Sylvan's Engineering courses in Prince Edward Island give budding engineers the chance to build these types of skills — and have a whole lot of fun as they do! 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. Every week, your child will partner with a friend to build, test and redesign structures, mastering important STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) along the way. After all, learning doesn't feel like a frustration when it's a lot of fun at the same time!
The Sylvan Experience
Learning becomes a personal and attentive experience at your local Sylvan centre in Prince Edward Island, where classes have no more than 12 students and the maximum student-to-teacher ratio is 6:1. We combine our one-on-one approach with a tailored blend of self-guided and collaborative tasks, helping kids stay interested and motivated with diverse learning methods.▼
We Make Learning More Hands-On
Getting hands-on with real-world engineering challenges is the best way to master the fundamentals. That's why our students design and build LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures each and every week. And once these creations have been built, students test them, enter them in friendly contests and tweak their design to include the new ideas and principles they've learned. In other words, you can count on us to engage, support and excite the budding engineer, architect or mechanic in your family — so expect race cars, bridges and other stimulating projects to become the main topic of conversation during your car rides together!
Creative learning starts here! Our Engineering courses in Prince Edward Island feature:
- STEM-based learning: Now is the time for your child to start developing competencies that are increasingly important in the 21st century.
- Hands as well as minds: We know when to integrate the latest app-based learning methods, but this program is all about getting hands-on.
- Teamwork: Students work together to complete tasks and improve their personal communication skills.
- Regular emails: We know you want to stay up to date with your child's progress, so we'll email you photos and summaries after each session — as well as a special look ahead to the next project.
