Our Engineering programs in the Paducah, Cape Girardeau and Harrisburg region are huge on fun! Your son or daughter can expect to complete a different hands-on project each week, including designing, testing and tweaking bridges and machines using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. Your child will get those creative juices flowing as he or she teams up with a buddy to build these awesome structures and challenges other teams to friendly games and 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!
A Real-World Education
It’s no secret that Sylvan’s Engineering courses in the Paducah, Cape Girardeau and Harrisburg region are fun, but did you know that they also help equip your child with valuable STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills? Via hands-on projects and collaborative group work, your son or daughter will acquire important critical thinking and problem solving abilities that can make a positive impact both inside and outside of the classroom.▼
Is Your Child a Budding Engineer?
From figuring out how to design complex structures to testing and tweaking them in order to come up with an improved solution, your child will be tackling problems just like a real engineer! Our hands-on programs are a fantastic way for your budding inventor to gain a solid grasp of engineering, science and architectural concepts while also igniting his or her imagination and creativity along the way.
