Sylvan’s Engineering courses in the Kansas City region make learning fun! Each and every week, your child will dive into a cool new project, such as designing, building and testing a machine or bridge using LEGO® bricks or K’NEX® pieces. Watch your child’s creativity soar as he or she constructs these complex creations with a partner and challenges other teams to friendly games and competitions. Equipping your child with these skills can help make a big impact not only in school and college, but also in future careers.
