Engineering takes creativity, imagination and great problem-solving abilities. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in Kentucky, now is the time for future engineers to develop these important skills — and have fun with new friends as they do so! We know how kids dismantle toys, gadgets and other devices (and put them back together… hopefully!), so we design our sessions to explore real-world architectural and mechanical challenges. Every week, students buddy up with friends to build structures, test them, and rebuild them better, learning vital STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) as part of the process. After all, it's so much easier to engage in learning if it happens to be great fun as well!
We're Here to Make a Real Difference
Your local Sylvan in Kentucky makes learning personal with classes of no more than 12 students and a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1. We also blend a variety of collaborative activities with different self-guided tasks, helping kids stay motivated with a range of proven learning techniques.▼
It's Time to Get Hands-On
The most effective way to understand critical engineering concepts is to use them to overcome real-life challenges. That's why we present our students with new LEGO® and K'NEX® building activities every week. And once these creations have been built, students test them, enter them in friendly contests and tweak their design to include the new ideas and principles they've learned. In other words, you can count on us to engage, support and excite the budding engineer, architect or mechanic in your family — so expect race cars, bridges and other stimulating projects to become the main topic of conversation during your car rides together!
Our fun, creative Engineering courses in Kentucky feature:
- STEM-based learning: Now is the time for your child to start developing competencies that are increasingly important in the 21st century.
- Hands as well as minds: We know when to integrate the latest app-based learning methods, but this program is all about getting hands-on.
- Teamwork: Students work together to complete tasks and improve their personal communication skills.
- Regular emails: We know you want to stay up to date with your child's progress, so we'll email you photos and summaries after each session — as well as a special look ahead to the next project.
