Successful engineers aren't just problem solvers: they have creativity and imagination. 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 appreciate that kids like to tinker with toys, gadgets and other devices to figure out how they work, so our sessions emphasize real challenges in mechanics and architecture. 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, learning is so much more engaging when it's a whole lot of fun as well!

Discover the Sylvan Difference

Learning becomes a personal and attentive experience at your local Sylvan in Maryland, where classes have no more than 12 students and the maximum student-to-teacher ratio is 6:1. We combine our one-on-one approach with a tailored blend of self-guided and collaborative tasks, helping kids stay interested and motivated with diverse learning methods.

Hands-On Learning

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 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, you can count on us to engage, support and excite the budding engineer, architect or mechanic in your family — so expect race cars, bridges and other stimulating projects to become the main topic of conversation during your car rides together!

It's time to get creative! Our Engineering courses in Maryland 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.
