Awesome After-School Activities
In the Phoenix region, your local Sylvan is not only a place where your child can cultivate valuable STEM skills; it’s also a place for developing confidence, making new friends and working on fun projects. Where else could your son or daughter get the chance to program a LEGO® robot for a friendly competition against classmates—or create his or her very own video game? There's no cooler way to gain tech-focused talents that will be a strong asset in future years.
Programs We Offer in the Phoenix region:
- Math Edge: Even though math doesn’t exactly have a reputation or being fun, our after-school program does away with the typical boring drills in favor of engaging—and challenging—activities that develop essential math skills your child can apply in the classroom and beyond.
- Coding: Kids love video games and computer animations, making our coding program the perfect way for them to let their imaginations run wild while learning a variety of modern computing techniques. Exciting interactive weekly projects using innovative Tynker™ technology will give your child the opportunity to show off what he or she is learning.
- Engineering: When your child is working on projects like constructing machines that go, go, go out of LEGO and building sprawling bridges with K’NEX, the sky is the limit on fun! Those are just a couple of the creative challenges that will help kids start thinking like real engineers.
- Robotics & Science: Even though building a LEGO® robot is cool enough as it is, your child will get to take things a step further and put real science and engineering concepts to use by bringing his or her creation to life with LEGO®’s award-winning WeDo™ programming software.
