With Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Chicagoland, learning is fun and exciting! Your child will have an amazing time working on a different hands-on project every week, such as constructing cool machines or bridges using LEGO® bricks or K’NEX® pieces. 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. It’s a novel way for your son or daughter to develop critical 21st century skills while solving problems just like an engineer!
