Another Way to Learn
Sylvan EDGE programs aim to make STEM subjects more appealing and engaging in order to put kids on the right track for high-demand careers. In fact, our focus on teamwork and interactivity through hands-on activities make learning feel more like an exciting challenge than a frustrating obligation. That’s just one way we work to nurture success in and out of the classroom.▼
More Than Your Typical After-School Program
So what can your child expect from a Sylvan EDGE program? While friendship and fun are definitely near the top of the list, there are also tons of innovative activities, challenges and projects. Whether it's building and coding a LEGO® robot, creating video games, building super cool structures or showing off new math skills to earn Certificates of Achievement, there is plenty of motivation — and interaction — in our STEM programs.
Sylvan EDGE Programs Include:
- Coding: What is cooler than video games and computer animations? Our sessions combine that cool factor with STEM skills relevant in the 21st century like coding, programming, problem-solving, physics, logic and more. Having fun and learning at the same time is what makes us different.
- Robotics: Each and every class brings a new and exciting STEM concept to explore as your child learns how to build and program a range of different robots using LEGO® bricks and software. Turns out, adding a little friendly competition to the pulleys, levers and motors makes learning fun again!
- Engineering: Our cool theme-based engineering programs are designed to help your child discover the fascinating world of machine and bridge design. Imaginations will run wild as kids learn to use architectural and engineering concepts that will help them develop their creative and critical thinking skills as well as build a solid foundation in STEM.
- Math Edge: A demand for strong math skills is something science, technology and engineering all have in common. In fact, a solid math foundation is important for developing high-level thinking skills in school and beyond. Thanks to our unique activities and motivational rewards system, two one-hour sessions a week should be enough to do wonders for your child’s confidence with numbers.
