It takes imagination, problem-solving and a great deal of creativity to be a successful engineer. Sylvan's Engineering courses in Kansas give budding engineers the chance to build these types of skills — and have a whole lot of fun as they do! We appreciate that kids like to tinker with toys, gadgets and other devices to figure out how they work, so our sessions emphasize real challenges in mechanics and architecture. Your child will work with a buddy to build and redesign different structures every week, getting to grips with crucial concepts in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) along the way. After all, kids engage in learning a lot more when it happens to be fun and enjoyable too!
Discover the Sylvan Difference
With no more than 12 students in each class and a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1, you can expect a personal and attentive learning experience at your local Sylvan center in Kansas. To that personal attention we add a mix of collaborative tasks and self-directed activities, helping to motivate and engage kids with a variety of proven learning techniques.▼
We Make Learning More Hands-On
We think there's no better way to understand engineering concepts and principles than by using them to solve real-life challenges. That's why our weekly sessions are based around designing and building LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures. That's why generations of families have turned to Sylvan to lay the foundations for future success. In other words, you can expect us to guide and engage the aspiring architect, engineer or mechanic in your life — and you can also expect bridges, race cars and other exciting projects to dominate conversations in your home!
