The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Tampa, St. Petersburg and Sarasota region. Your child will love getting hands on with a different project every week, like building, testing and modifying a machine or bridge using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. Watch your child’s creativity soar as he or she constructs these complex creations with a partner and challenges other teams to friendly games and competitions. Your child will be solving problems just like an engineer in no time — and developing vital 21st century skills too!
