Sylvan’s Engineering courses in the Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo and Battle Creek region make learning fun! Your child will have an amazing time working on a different hands-on project every week, such as constructing cool machines or bridges using LEGO® bricks or K’NEX® pieces. Watch your child’s creativity flourish and confidence soar as he or she teams up with a partner to build these cool structures and participates in fun games and friendly competitions with other students. It’s a novel way for your son or daughter to develop critical 21st century skills while solving problems just like an engineer!

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! Through our interactive programs, your aspiring engineer will learn important science, architectural and engineering concepts while powering up his or her imagination and creativity each and every week. Parents can join in on the fun too: we send out regular email communication to keep you in the loop every week. We’ll also preview the following week’s project so you and your child can gear up for the next fun activity!
