The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the St. Louis region. Each and every week, your child will dive into a cool new project, such as designing, building and testing a machine or bridge using LEGO® bricks or K’NEX® pieces. Your child will get those creative juices flowing as he or she teams up with a buddy to build these awesome structures and challenges other teams to friendly games and competitions. It’s an exciting way for your child to solve problems just like an engineer and develop valuable 21st century skills in the process!
A Real-World Education
Beyond being big on fun, our Engineering programs in the St. Louis region are also designed to equip your child with valuable STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) abilities. Through creative activities, immersive learning and group collaboration, your child will build valuable problem solving and critical thinking competencies that can make a lasting impact both academically and personally!▼
Calling all Budding Engineers
From designing and building cool structures to tweaking and rebuilding them to test out a different approach, your child will be solving challenges just like a real engineer! Our hands-on programs are a fantastic way for your budding inventor to gain a solid grasp of engineering, science and architectural concepts while also igniting his or her imagination and creativity along the way. Parents can join in on the fun too: we send out regular email communication to keep you in the loop every week. We’ll also preview the following week’s project so you and your child can gear up for the next fun activity!
