Engineers need to be problem solvers with plenty of creativity and imagination. With engineering courses in Mississippi from Sylvan, it's a great time for budding engineers to work on these skills — and have an unforgettably fun experience as they do so! Kids love to work out what makes toys, gadgets and devices tick, so our sessions are tailored to explore and examine real mechanical and architectural challenges. Your child will team up with a buddy to build, test and optimize various objects and structures every week, mastering critical 21st century 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!
Discover the Sylvan Difference
With a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1 — and no more than 12 students per class — your local Sylvan center in Mississippi is where learning gets personal. We also combine that one-on-one attention with collaborative activities and self-guided tasks, helping kids stay engaged with a mix of proven learning methods.▼
Getting Hands-On with Important Concepts
We think there's no better way to understand engineering concepts and principles than by using them to solve real-life challenges. That's why our students are presented with new and exciting LEGO® and K'NEX® building activities each 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. In other words, you can count on us to engage, support and excite the budding engineer, architect or mechanic in your family — so expect race cars, bridges and other stimulating projects to become the main topic of conversation during your car rides together!
Creativity is a defining feature of our Engineering courses in Mississippi, which also include:
- Handy projects: We know all about app-based learning, but this is all about learning by doing.
- STEM concepts: You can never be too young to start learning vital 21st century competencies.
- Collaboration: Students partner up to take on challenges and develop stronger interpersonal skills.
- Frequent updates: After each session we'll contact you via email with photos, summaries and a brief look ahead to the next project.
