Sylvan’s Engineering courses in the Detroit region make learning fun! Your son or daughter can expect to complete a different hands-on project each week, including designing, testing and tweaking bridges and machines using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. Watch your child’s creativity take flight as he or she builds these complex structures with a partner and participates in fun games and friendly challenges against other teams. Your child will be solving problems just like an engineer in no time — and developing vital 21st century skills too!
