Engineers need to be problem solvers with plenty of creativity and imagination. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in Connecticut, there's never been a better time for budding engineers to enhance these skills — and have a blast doing it! We know how kids love to tinker with toys, gadgets and other devices, so we focus our sessions around real mechanical and architectural 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 is so much more engaging when it's a whole lot of fun as well!

Discover the Sylvan Difference

With a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1 — and no more than 12 students per class — your local Sylvan in Connecticut is where learning gets personal. We also combine that one-on-one attention with collaborative activities and self-guided tasks, helping kids stay engaged with a mix of proven learning methods.

We Make Learning More Hands-On

There's simply no better way to master the fundamentals of engineering than by applying them to real-life tasks and challenges. That's why our students are presented with new and exciting LEGO® and K'NEX® building activities each week. And they don't only build objects: they also learn how to test them, compete in friendly classroom competitions, and redesign their creations using all the principles they've mastered. In other words, you can expect us to guide and engage the aspiring architect, engineer or mechanic in your life — and you can also expect bridges, race cars and other exciting projects to dominate conversations in your home!

Creative learning starts here! Our Engineering courses in Connecticut feature:

  • 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.
