You'll find that your local Sylvan in the Anchorage region isn't just a place where children develop valuable STEM skills; it's also where confidence grows, friendships are made and kids have a blast working on fun projects. Where else do kids get the chance to design and program their own LEGO® robot to enter in friendly competition, or design their very own video game? There's no cooler way to gain tech-focused talents that will be a strong asset in future years.
Our Programs in the Anchorage region Include:
- Coding: Kids love video games and computer animations, so our coding program isn't only relevant — it's a great way to capture budding imaginations, nurture creativity and focus on a variety of modern computing techniques. Using innovative Tynker™ technology, your child will work on interactive weekly projects that you can share to show off his or her exciting progress.
- Robotics: Building a LEGO® robot is already cool, but the real magic happens — and the real science and engineering concepts come into play — when your child brings his or her creation to life using LEGO® Education's award-winning WeDo™ programming software.
- Engineering: Whether your child is constructing machines that go, go, go with LEGO® or building soaring bridges with K’NEX®, the sky’s the limit on fun! These creative challenges get kids to think like real engineers.
- Math Edge: Math may not always be thought of as a fun subject, but with our after-school program you can say goodbye to boring drills and hello to fun activities, challenging projects and a host advanced math skills that can be applied in the classroom and beyond.
