The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Alexandria Region. 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. Your child’s creativity will soar to new levels as he or she works with a buddy to put together these unique creations and challenges other students to friendly games and competitions. It’s an exciting way for your child to solve problems just like an engineer and develop valuable 21st century skills in the process!
