With Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Kansas City region, learning is fun and exciting! Your son or daughter can expect to complete a different hands-on project each week, including designing, testing and tweaking bridges and machines using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. Watch your child’s creativity reach new heights as he or she builds these cool creations with a buddy and challenges other teams to fun competitions. Equipping your child with these skills can help make a big impact not only in school and college, but also in future careers.
A 21st Century Education
Our Engineering courses in the Kansas City region aren’t just big on excitement: they’re also a great way to equip your child with important STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) concepts. Through three-dimensional learning, collaborative group activities and creative exercises, your child will also develop vital problem solving skills and critical thinking abilities that can make a big impact in the classroom and beyond!▼
Is There an Aspiring Engineer in Your Family?
From figuring out how to design complex structures to testing and tweaking them in order to come up with an improved solution, your child will be tackling problems just like a real engineer! Our interactive courses are a great way for your aspiring inventor to get to grips with science, engineering and architectural concepts while activating his or her creativity and imagination in the process. Parents won’t be missing out on the fun either: we send regular email communication so you can stay informed of your child’s progress.
