Engineering takes creativity, imagination and great problem-solving abilities. There's never been a better time for future engineers to develop these skills — and have a blast doing it — with Sylvan's Engineering courses in Maryland. 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, your child will partner with a friend to build, test and redesign structures, mastering important STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) along the way. After all, there's no reason why learning can't be fun and engaging!
The Sylvan Experience
Your local Sylvan in Maryland has a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1 — and a maximum class size of 12 students per class —in order to ensure learning is both personal and attentive. We also consolidate that one-on-one attention with a varied assortment of collaborative and independent tasks, helping kids stay engaged (and motivated!) with a blend of learning methods that are proven to be effective.▼
Let's Get Hands-On
Engaging with practical, hands-on engineering challenges is the most effective way to master the most important concepts. That's why our weekly sessions are based around designing and building LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures. And they don't only build them: they also test them, enter them into friendly competitions and redesign them using the new principles they've learned. In other words, the budding mechanic, engineer or architect in your life will always be fully supported, motivated and engaged at Sylvan — so don't be surprised when your son or daughter can't stop talking about bridges, race cars and other exciting hands-on projects!
Let's get creative! Our Engineering courses in Maryland 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.
