Successful engineers aren't just problem solvers: they have 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! We appreciate that kids like to tinker with toys, gadgets and other devices to figure out how they work, so our sessions emphasize real challenges in mechanics and architecture. Your child will team up with a buddy to build, test and optimize various objects and structures every week, mastering critical 21st century STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) along the way. After all, there's no reason why learning can't be fun and engaging!

We Make a Real Difference

With no more than 12 students in each class and a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1, you can expect a personal and attentive learning experience at your local Sylvan center in Alabama. To that personal attention we add a mix of collaborative tasks and self-directed activities, helping to motivate and engage kids with a variety of proven learning techniques.

Engaging Young Minds and Hands

There's no better way to learn engineering concepts than by applying them to real-life challenges. That's why our students are presented with new and exciting LEGO® and K'NEX® building activities each week. And it doesn't end with the building: students discover how to test their creations, redesign them using the principles they've learned, and take part in friendly competitions with classmates' constructions. In other words, we're here to support, engage and excite the young engineer, mechanic or architect in your life — so don't be surprised if bridges, race cars and other projects become the topic of conversation in your home!

Creativity is a defining feature of our Engineering courses in Alabama, which also include:

  • 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.
