Engineers need to be problem solvers with plenty of creativity and imagination. With engineering courses in Colorado from Sylvan, it's a great time for budding engineers to work on these skills — and have an unforgettably fun experience as they do so! We know how kids dismantle toys, gadgets and other devices (and put them back together… hopefully!), so we design our sessions to explore real-world architectural and mechanical challenges. Each week, your child will buddy up with a friend to learn important STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) by building, testing and redesigning various structures and objects. After all, learning doesn't feel like a frustration when it's a lot of fun at the same time!
We Make a Real Difference
Learning becomes a personal and attentive experience at your local Sylvan in Colorado, 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.
Getting Hands-On with Important Concepts
We think there's no better way to understand engineering concepts and principles than by using them to solve real-life challenges. That's why our students design and build LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures each and every week. And once these creations have been built, students test them, enter them in friendly contests and tweak their design to include the new ideas and principles they've learned. In other words, you can count on us to engage, support and excite the budding engineer, architect or mechanic in your family — so expect race cars, bridges and other stimulating projects to become the main topic of conversation during your car rides together!
Creativity is a defining feature of our Engineering courses in Colorado, which also include:
- Hands-on sessions: Many of our programs are based around the latest interactive, app-based learning — but this is all about getting practical and learning by doing.
- STEM-first learning: The modern world needs people with modern skills, so there's no better time for your child to start building a skill set fit for the 21st century.
- Teamwork: Collaborative tasks help students learn how to work together and communicate more effectively.
- Email updates: We'll send you an email after each session with photos and summaries, as well as a preview of upcoming projects.
