Inspire your son or daughter’s imagination with our Engineering programs in Woodridge and encourage his or her interest in tinkering with machines and designing and building structures. Our sessions focus on fun and friendship, helping kids fire up their creativity as they explore important engineering concepts. Pairing up with a buddy, your child will work on a new project each class, including constructing one of the world’s seven bridge types with K’NEX® pieces or building a complex machine with LEGO® bricks. It’s an excellent way for your child to learn useful 21st century skills that will come in handy in the classroom and beyond!
Focus on Important STEM Skills
Building, deconstructing and experimenting with cool creations means kids have a blast with our Engineering program in Woodridge while developing important skills in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). Through hands-on exercises and collaboration with classmates, your child will also strengthen his or her problem solving and critical thinking skills.

A Personalized Experience
We ensure a maximum class size of 12 students — and a student-to-teacher ratio of no more than 6:1 — which means you can count on Sylvan to provide the personal attention your son or daughter needs to thrive. We’ll also keep you informed about your child’s projects with regular email communication. You’ll get to see your son or daughter’s creations, find out more about the STEM concepts learned and get a preview of next week’s project. It's a nice way to celebrate (and share!) your child’s successes.
