Engineering demands not only strong problem-solving abilities, but also lots of creativity and imagination. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in Alabama, young engineers have a great opportunity to enhance these skills — and have fun while they do it! Kids love to work out what makes toys, gadgets and devices tick, so our sessions are tailored to explore and examine real mechanical and architectural 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 is so much more engaging when it's a whole lot of fun as well!
Discover the Sylvan Difference
Learning becomes a personal and attentive experience at your local Sylvan in Alabama, 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
There's simply no better way to master the fundamentals of engineering than by applying them to real-life tasks and challenges. That's why we present our students with new LEGO® and K'NEX® building activities every week. And the building part is only the start: students learn how to test their creations, entering them in friendly contests against competing teams and implementing the new design principles they've mastered. Very simply, our goal is to guide and motivate your budding engineer, mechanic or architect — so you shouldn't be surprised when race cars, bridges and other engaging projects become your son or daughter's preferred topic of conversation!
