Engineering demands not only strong problem-solving abilities, but also lots of creativity and imagination. There's never been a better time for future engineers to develop these skills — and have a blast doing it — with Sylvan's Engineering courses in Hawaii. Kids love to figure out how toys, gadgets and other devices work, so we tailor our sessions to explore real-world challenges in architecture and mechanics. Every week, students buddy up with friends to build structures, test them, and rebuild them better, learning vital STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) as part of the process. After all, it's so much easier to engage in learning if it happens to be great fun as well!
The Sylvan Difference
Learning becomes a personal and attentive experience at your local Sylvan in Hawaii, where classes have no more than 12 students and the maximum student-to-teacher ratio is 6:1. We combine our one-on-one approach with a tailored blend of self-guided and collaborative tasks, helping kids stay interested and motivated with diverse learning methods.▼
It's Time to Get Hands-On
Getting hands-on with real-world engineering challenges is the best way to master the fundamentals. That's why our students design and build LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures each and every week. And it doesn't end with the building: students discover how to test their creations, redesign them using the principles they've learned, and take part in friendly competitions with classmates' constructions. 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!
It's time to get creative! Our Engineering courses in Hawaii feature:
- STEM-based learning: Now is the time for your child to start developing competencies that are increasingly important in the 21st century.
- Hands as well as minds: We know when to integrate the latest app-based learning methods, but this program is all about getting hands-on.
- Teamwork: Students work together to complete tasks and improve their personal communication skills.
- Regular emails: We know you want to stay up to date with your child's progress, so we'll email you photos and summaries after each session — as well as a special look ahead to the next project.
