The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Chicagoland. Your child will have a blast diving into a new hands-on project each week, like designing, testing and redesigning machines and bridges using LEGO® bricks or K’NEX® pieces. 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. Your child will be solving problems just like an engineer in no time — and developing vital 21st century skills too!

Think Like a Real Engineer!

Whether it’s constructing intricate structures or rebuilding them all over again in order to try out an alternate solution, your son or daughter will be tackling challenges and solving problems just like a real engineer! Our practical, hands-on courses are an amazing way for your budding inventor to understand important science, engineering and architectural concepts while also using his or her imagination and creativity. We also get parents in on the fun by providing regular email communication to fill you in on the cool new projects your child worked on each week. We also send a preview of the upcoming week’s project so you and your son or daughter can gear up for what’s next!
