Engineers need strong technical abilities and know-how, as well as creative problem-solving skills and plenty of imagination. With engineering courses in Maryland from Sylvan, it's a great time for budding engineers to work on these skills — and have an unforgettably fun experience as they do so! 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. Your child will team up with a buddy to build, test and optimize various objects and structures every week, mastering critical 21st century 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!

The Sylvan Experience

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.

We Make Learning More Hands-On

There's simply no better way to master the fundamentals of engineering than by applying them to real-life tasks and challenges. That's why our students design and build LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures each and every week. And the learning doesn't end once building is finished: students also learn how to test their creations, entering them in friendly contests and redesigning them according to the new principles 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!

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.
