The Coolest After-School Activities

Your local Sylvan in the Chicagoland is more than just a place where children develop valuable STEM skills; it’s also where confidence is nurtured, friends are made and kids have a great time working on exciting projects. Where else could your little one program a LEGO® robot with a buddy and enter it in a friendly competition with other teams — or design, create and play his or her very own video game? There's no cooler way to gain tech-focused talents that will be a strong asset in future years.

Programs We Offer in the Chicagoland:

  • Coding: Since kids love video games and computer animations, our coding program is not only relevant, but it’s also a great way to foster creativity through a variety of modern computing techniques. Weekly projects, using innovative Tynker™ technology, are a great way for your child to show off his or her exciting progress.
  • Engineering: Whether your child is constructing soaring bridges with K’NEX® or building working machines with LEGO®, the fun never stops! Creative projects like these and more encourage kids to think like real engineers.
  • Robotics & Science: As if building a LEGO® robot wasn’t cool enough, your child will also have the chance to put real science and engineering concepts to use by bringing his or her creation to life using LEGO® Education’s award-winning WeDo™ programming software.
  • Math Edge: Despite math having a reputation for not being the most exciting subject, our after-school program can offer an alternative to the boring drills and exercises with plenty of challenging—and fun—activities that will help your child thrive in the classroom and beyond.
