With Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Minneapolis 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. Your child’s creativity will soar to new levels as he or she works with a buddy to put together these unique creations and challenges other students to friendly games and competitions. It’s a fantastic way for your son or daughter to tackle challenges just like an engineer and acquire important 21st century skills along the way!

In addition to offering big-time fun and excitement, Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Minneapolis region also provide your child with opportunities to learn important STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) competencies. Through a combination of hands-on learning, teamwork and creative projects, your child will develop valuable critical thinking and problem solving abilities that can make a positive difference in school and beyond!▼
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.
