Engineering demands not only strong problem-solving abilities, but also lots of creativity and imagination. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in Massachusetts, now is the time for future engineers to develop these important skills — and have fun with new friends 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. 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!
The Sylvan Difference
With no more than 12 students in each class and a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1, you can expect a personal and attentive learning experience at your local Sylvan center in Massachusetts. To that personal attention we add a mix of collaborative tasks and self-directed activities, helping to motivate and engage kids with a variety of proven learning techniques.▼
Getting Hands-On with Important Concepts
The most effective way to understand critical engineering concepts is to use them to overcome real-life challenges. That's why our weekly sessions task students to design and build new and exciting LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures. That's why generations of families have turned to Sylvan to lay the foundations for future success. In other words, the future mechanic, architect or engineer in your life is sure to be engaged and excited at Sylvan — just don't be surprised if dinner conversation is dominated by bridges, race cars and other hands-on projects!
Creativity is a defining feature of our Engineering courses in Massachusetts, which also include:
- 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.
