It takes imagination, problem-solving and a great deal of creativity to be a successful engineer. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in Massachusetts, there's never been a better time for budding engineers to enhance these skills — and have a blast doing it! We know how kids love to tinker with toys, gadgets and other devices, so we focus our sessions around real mechanical and architectural challenges. Working with a buddy, your child will build and test new structures every week, mastering 21st century STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) as they go. After all, kids engage in learning a lot more when it happens to be fun and enjoyable too!
The Sylvan Experience
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 center in Massachusetts. We combine that personal attention with team activities and independent tasks, helping kids stay engaged and motivated with a diverse blend of learning methods.▼
Getting Hands-On with Important Concepts
There's no better way to learn engineering concepts than by applying them to real-life challenges. That's why we present our students with new LEGO® and K'NEX® building activities every week. 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, you can expect us to guide and engage the aspiring architect, engineer or mechanic in your life — and you can also expect bridges, race cars and other exciting projects to dominate conversations in your home!
Creative learning starts here! Our Engineering courses in Massachusetts feature:
- Hands-on sessions: Many of our programs are based around the latest interactive, app-based learning — but this is all about getting practical and learning by doing.
- STEM-first learning: The modern world needs people with modern skills, so there's no better time for your child to start building a skill set fit for the 21st century.
- Teamwork: Collaborative tasks help students learn how to work together and communicate more effectively.
- Email updates: We'll send you an email after each session with photos and summaries, as well as a preview of upcoming projects.
