The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Chicagoland. 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. Your child’s creativity will soar to new levels as he or she works with a buddy to put together these unique creations and challenges other students to friendly games and competitions. Your child will be solving problems just like an engineer in no time — and developing vital 21st century skills too!

Is Your Child a Budding Engineer?

From constructing multifaceted structures to testing and rebuilding them in order to try out a different solution, your son or daughter will be taking on challenges just like a real engineer! Our interactive courses are a great way for your aspiring inventor to get to grips with science, engineering and architectural concepts while activating his or her creativity and imagination in the process. We also get parents in on the fun by providing regular email communication to fill you in on the cool new projects your child worked on each 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!
