With Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Birmingham, Anniston and Tuscaloosa region, learning is fun and exciting! Your child will have an amazing time working on a different hands-on project every week, such as constructing cool machines or bridges using LEGO® bricks or K’NEX® pieces. Your child will get those creative juices flowing as he or she teams up with a buddy to build these awesome structures and challenges other teams to friendly games and competitions. It’s an innovative way for your child to think and problem-solve just like an engineer while developing crucial 21st century skills along the way!
