Successful engineers aren't just problem solvers: they have creativity and imagination. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in Mississippi, there's never been a better time for budding engineers to enhance these skills — and have a blast doing it! We know how kids love to tinker with toys, gadgets and other devices, so we focus our sessions around 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 engage in learning a lot more when it happens to be fun and enjoyable too!
Discover the Sylvan Difference
Learning becomes a personal and attentive experience at your local Sylvan in Mississippi, where classes have no more than 12 students and the maximum student-to-teacher ratio is 6:1. We combine our one-on-one approach with a tailored blend of self-guided and collaborative tasks, helping kids stay interested and motivated with diverse learning methods.▼
Engaging Young Minds and Hands
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 design and build LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures each and every week. And it doesn't end with the building: students discover how to test their creations, redesign them using the principles they've learned, and take part in friendly competitions with classmates' constructions. 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!
Creative learning starts here! Our Engineering courses in Mississippi feature:
- STEM-based learning: Now is the time for your child to start developing competencies that are increasingly important in the 21st century.
- Hands as well as minds: We know when to integrate the latest app-based learning methods, but this program is all about getting hands-on.
- Teamwork: Students work together to complete tasks and improve their personal communication skills.
- Regular emails: We know you want to stay up to date with your child's progress, so we'll email you photos and summaries after each session — as well as a special look ahead to the next project.
