The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Anchorage region. Each and every week, your child will dive into a cool new project, such as designing, building and testing a machine or bridge using LEGO® bricks or K’NEX® pieces. Watch your child’s creativity flourish and confidence soar as he or she teams up with a partner to build these cool structures and participates in fun games and friendly competitions with other students. It’s a fantastic way for your child to learn how to problem-solve just like an engineer and get equipped with 21st century skills in the process!
21st Century Learning
Our Engineering courses in the Anchorage region aren’t just big on excitement: they’re also a great way to equip your child with important STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) concepts. Through three-dimensional learning, collaborative group activities and creative exercises, your child will also develop vital problem solving skills and critical thinking abilities that can make a big impact in the classroom and beyond!▼
Is Your Child a Budding Engineer?
From constructing complex structures to tweaking and rebuilding them in order to test out a better solution, your son or daughter will be solving problems like a real engineer in no time! Our hands-on programs are a fun and innovative way to help your eager inventor understand essential science, architectural and engineering concepts while getting creative and firing up his or her imagination in the process. Parents won’t be missing out on the fun either: we send regular email communication so you can stay informed of your child’s progress.
