With Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Chicagoland, learning is fun and exciting! Your son or daughter will have a great time tackling a new interactive project each week, including building, testing and rebuilding bridges and machines using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. Watch your child’s creativity take flight as he or she builds these complex structures with a partner and participates in fun games and friendly challenges against other teams. It’s a fantastic way for your son or daughter to tackle challenges just like an engineer and acquire important 21st century skills along the way!

Calling all Budding Engineers

From building sophisticated structures to testing, deconstructing and redesigning them all over again with a better solution, your child will be thinking and problem solving like a real engineer! Through our interactive programs, your aspiring engineer will learn important science, architectural and engineering concepts while powering up his or her imagination and creativity each and every week. Parents can join in on the fun too: we send out regular email communication to keep you in the loop every week. We will also provide a preview of the upcoming week’s project so you and your child can gear up for the next cool activity!
