Engineers need to be problem solvers with plenty of creativity and imagination. Sylvan's Engineering courses in Delaware give budding engineers the chance to build these types of skills — and have a whole lot of fun as they do! Kids love to figure out how toys, gadgets and other devices work, so our sessions are built around real-life mechanical and architectural challenges. Your child will work with a buddy to build and redesign different structures every week, getting to grips with crucial concepts in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) along the way. After all, there's no reason why learning can't be fun and engaging!
What to Expect at Sylvan
With a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1 — and no more than 12 students per class — your local Sylvan in Delaware 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.▼
Let's Get Hands-On
There's no better way to learn engineering concepts than by applying them to real-life 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 them: they also test them, enter them into friendly competitions and redesign them using the new 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!
