Engineers need to be problem solvers with plenty of creativity and imagination. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in Louisiana, there's never been a better time for budding engineers to enhance these skills — and have a blast doing it! Kids love to figure out how toys, gadgets and other devices work, so our sessions are built around real-life mechanical and architectural challenges. Your child will work with a buddy to build and redesign different structures every week, getting to grips with crucial concepts in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) along the way. After all, learning doesn't feel like a frustration when it's a lot of fun at the same time!
Discover the Sylvan Difference
With a maximum of 12 students per class — and a student-teacher ratio of 6:1 — learning is a personal experience at your local Sylvan in Louisiana. We combine that personal attention with team activities and independent tasks, helping kids stay engaged and motivated with a diverse blend of learning methods.
We Make Learning More Hands-On
There's no better way to learn engineering concepts than by applying them to real-life challenges. That's why our weekly sessions task students to design and build new and exciting LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures. 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, we're here to support, engage and excite the young engineer, mechanic or architect in your life — so don't be surprised if bridges, race cars and other projects become the topic of conversation in your home!
Our Engineering courses in Louisiana focus on creativity, and also feature:
- Handy projects: We know all about app-based learning, but this is all about learning by doing.
- STEM concepts: You can never be too young to start learning vital 21st century competencies.
- Collaboration: Students partner up to take on challenges and develop stronger interpersonal skills.
- Frequent updates: After each session we'll contact you via email with photos, summaries and a brief look ahead to the next project.
