Sylvan EDGE Programs in Colorado Include:
- Robotics: In each session, your child will work with a buddy to build a LEGO® robot, learning science and engineering concepts (and having fun!) along the way. Once it's ready, the "bot" can be brought to life using LEGO® Education's award-winning WeDo™ software and entered into friendly games against other teams.
- Coding: Our coding program helps kids develop important problem-solving, logic and computational skills as they create characters, sounds, special effects and animations using kid-friendly Tynker™ technology. Your child will create mini-stories and gain the skills to design a video game that he or she can play with friends. You'll even get a link to your child's weekly project so you can see and share his or her amazing progress.
- Engineering: Engineers have the power to transform the world — one idea at a time. The key is giving children fun experiences with engineering when they’re young, so they’re inspired to think big. Kids take on fun, hands-on challenges, such as building simple machines or designing amazing bridges. Every session has a creative theme to inspire kids as they experiment with important STEM concepts.
- Math Edge: You won't find any repetitive drills in our math skill program, which features a fun, interactive, collaborative format where brain-boosting activities help kids think independently and make math concepts stick. The result? Stronger problem-solving skills, greater confidence and a whole lot of fun and friendship.
