With Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the St. Louis region, learning is fun and exciting! Your son or daughter will have a great time tackling a new interactive project each week, including building, testing and rebuilding bridges and machines using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. Your child’s creativity will soar to new levels as he or she works with a buddy to put together these unique creations and challenges other students to friendly games and competitions. It’s a fantastic way for your son or daughter to tackle challenges just like an engineer and acquire important 21st century skills along the way!
A 21st Century Education
It’s no secret that Sylvan’s Engineering courses in the St. Louis region are fun, but did you know that they also help equip your child with valuable STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills? Via hands-on projects and collaborative group work, your son or daughter will acquire important critical thinking and problem solving abilities that can make a positive impact both inside and outside of the classroom.▼
Think Like a Real Engineer!
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!
