The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Tallahassee and Thomasville region. Your son or daughter can expect to complete a different hands-on project each week, including designing, testing and tweaking bridges and machines using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. Watch your child’s creativity flourish and confidence soar as he or she teams up with a partner to build these cool structures and participates in fun games and friendly competitions with other students. Equipping your child with these skills can help make a big impact not only in school and college, but also in future careers.
