The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Des Moines and Ames region. Your son or daughter will have a great time tackling a new interactive project each week, including building, testing and rebuilding bridges and machines using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. Watch your child’s creativity reach new heights as he or she builds these cool creations with a buddy and challenges other teams to fun competitions. It’s a fantastic way for your son or daughter to tackle challenges just like an engineer and acquire important 21st century skills along the way!

Aspiring Engineers Unite!

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 fun and innovative way to help your eager inventor understand essential science, architectural and engineering concepts while getting creative and firing up his or her imagination in the process. Parents are kept in the loop through our regular email communication, so you can see your child’s progress and celebrate his or her achievements. We’ll also preview the following week’s project so you and your child can gear up for the next fun activity!
