Successful engineers aren't just problem solvers: they have creativity and imagination. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in Missouri, there's never been a better time for budding engineers to enhance these skills — and have a blast doing it! 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 work with a buddy to build and redesign different structures every week, getting to grips with crucial concepts in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) along the way. After all, there's no reason why learning can't be fun and engaging!
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 Missouri 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.▼
Engaging Young Minds and Hands
Getting hands-on with real-world engineering challenges is the best way to master the fundamentals. That's why our weekly sessions task students to design and build new and exciting LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures. And the learning doesn't end once building is finished: students also learn how to test their creations, entering them in friendly contests and redesigning them according to the new principles learned. In other words, the future mechanic, architect or engineer in your life is sure to be engaged and excited at Sylvan — just don't be surprised if dinner conversation is dominated by bridges, race cars and other hands-on projects!
Creative learning starts here! Our Engineering courses in Missouri feature:
