Engineers need strong technical abilities and know-how, as well as creative problem-solving skills and plenty of imagination. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in Mississippi, now is the time for future engineers to develop these important skills — and have fun with new friends as they do so! Kids love to figure out how toys, gadgets and other devices work, so our sessions are built around real-life mechanical and architectural 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, kids find it a lot easier to engage with learning if they’re having fun at the same time!
What to Expect at Sylvan
Your local Sylvan center in Mississippi has a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1 — and a maximum class size of 12 students per class —in order to ensure learning is both personal and attentive. We also consolidate that one-on-one attention with a varied assortment of collaborative and independent tasks, helping kids stay engaged (and motivated!) with a blend of learning methods that are proven to be effective.▼
Engaging Young Minds and Hands
There's simply no better way to master the fundamentals of engineering than by applying them to real-life tasks and challenges. That's why our students design and build LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures each and every week. And they don't only build them: they also test them, enter them into friendly competitions and redesign them using the new principles they've learned. Very simply, our goal is to guide and motivate your budding engineer, mechanic or architect — so you shouldn't be surprised when race cars, bridges and other engaging projects become your son or daughter's preferred topic of conversation!
It's time to get creative! Our Engineering courses in Mississippi feature:
- Emphasis on STEM: As the modern world increasingly relies on people with strong STEM skill sets, it's never too early for your child to start developing 21st century competencies.
- Hands-on learning: Sylvan is no stranger to the very latest advances in interactive, app-based learning — but our Engineering courses are all about learning by doing.
- Collaboration: Students work together to enhance their ability to communicate with others and work as a team.
- Frequent updates: You'll learn about each session thanks to our weekly email updates, which include photos, summaries and a preview of the next project.
