The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Boston region. Each and every week, your child will dive into a cool new project, such as designing, building and testing a machine or bridge using LEGO® bricks or K’NEX® pieces. 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 a novel way for your son or daughter to develop critical 21st century skills while solving problems just like an engineer!
A Real-World Education
In addition to offering fun and memorable experiences, our Engineering courses in the Boston region help equip students with vital STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) abilities. Hands-on projects, creative activities and group learning all combine to help your child acquire crucial problem solving and critical thinking skills that can make a lasting impact, both in the classroom and beyond.▼
