With Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo and Battle Creek region, learning is fun and exciting! Your son or daughter will have a great time tackling a new interactive project each week, including building, testing and rebuilding bridges and machines using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. Watch your child’s creativity reach new heights as he or she builds these cool creations with a buddy and challenges other teams to fun competitions. It’s an innovative way for your child to think and problem-solve just like an engineer while developing crucial 21st century skills along the way!

Think Like a Real Engineer!

From building sophisticated structures to testing, deconstructing and redesigning them all over again with a better solution, your child will be thinking and problem solving like a real engineer! Our hands-on programs are a fantastic way for your budding inventor to gain a solid grasp of engineering, science and architectural concepts while also igniting his or her imagination and creativity along the way. Parents can also have fun learning about the cool new things students learned in class through our regular email communication. We also preview the following week’s project via email so you and your child can get excited for the next session!
