With Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the South Bend and Elkhart region, learning is fun and exciting! Your child will love getting hands on with a different project every week, like building, testing and modifying a machine or bridge using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. Watch your child’s creativity flourish and confidence soar as he or she teams up with a partner to build these cool structures and participates in fun games and friendly competitions with other students. Equipping your child with these skills can help make a big impact not only in school and college, but also in future careers.
