With Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Alexandria Region, learning is fun and exciting! Your child will love getting hands on with a different project every week, like building, testing and modifying a machine or bridge using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. Watch your child’s creativity take flight as he or she builds these complex structures with a partner and participates in fun games and friendly challenges against other teams. Your child will be solving problems just like an engineer in no time — and developing vital 21st century skills too!
Is There an Aspiring Engineer in Your Family?
From building sophisticated structures to testing, deconstructing and redesigning them all over again with a better solution, your child will be thinking and problem solving like a real engineer! Through our interactive programs, your aspiring engineer will learn important science, architectural and engineering concepts while powering up his or her imagination and creativity each and every week. Parents can join in on the fun too: we send out regular email communication to keep you in the loop every week. In addition, we’ll provide a sneak peek of the next week’s project so the whole family can get excited for the next fun project!
