The Coolest After-School Activities
You’ll discover your local Sylvan in the Lafayette region isn’t just a place for your son or daughter to develop their STEM-based abilities; it’s also the perfect environment to cultivate confidence, build lasting friendships and have a great time working on fun projects. Where else could your little one program a LEGO® robot with a buddy and enter it in a friendly competition with other teams — or design, create and play his or her very own video game? Developing tech-focused skills has never been cooler.
Our Programs in the Lafayette region Include:
- Coding: Since kids love video games and computer animations, our coding program is not only relevant, but it’s also a great way to foster creativity through a variety of modern computing techniques. Weekly projects, using innovative Tynker™ technology, are a great way for your child to show off his or her exciting progress.
- Engineering: Whether your child is constructing soaring bridges with K’NEX® or building working machines with LEGO®, the fun never stops! Creative projects like these and more encourage kids to think like real engineers.
- Robotics: As if building a LEGO® robot wasn’t cool enough, your child will also have the chance to put real science and engineering concepts to use by bringing his or her creation to life using LEGO® Education’s award-winning WeDo™ programming software.
- Math Edge: Despite math having a reputation for not being the most exciting subject, our after-school program can offer an alternative to the boring drills and exercises with plenty of challenging—and fun—activities that will help your child thrive in the classroom and beyond.
