What Sets Our Programs Apart?
With our Robotics & Science, Coding, Engineering and Math Edge programs, we’ve combined the challenge of academic projects with seriously cool technology for a guaranteed brain boost. We know the benefit of fun, friendship and interaction, so we’re big on collaborative tasks that require teamwork as well. Your child can even bring a friend or sibling along for the ride!
Aim Higher with STEM
STEM has a reputation for being an area where the brightest minds achieve the most innovative and cutting-edge things – and our STEM programs are no exception. Sylvan EDGE gives kids the opportunity to get hands-on experience in a variety of exciting activities, like designing their very own video game and programming a robot to enter into friendly competition against other kids. You can relax knowing your child is building solid friendships and learning skills relevant for the 21st century along the way!
Included in Sylvan EDGE Programs:
- Engineering: One idea at a time, engineers have the power to change the world. Giving kids positive experiences with engineering when they’re young will help motivate them to put their inspiration to good use later. Kids engage in fun, hands-on activities like building small machines and designing intricate bridges. Experimenting with essential STEM concepts never gets old with creative themes that change from session to session.
- Coding: By teaching kids to create characters, sounds, special effects and animations using kid-friendly Tynker™ technology, our coding program helps them develop important problem-solving, logic and computational skills. Your child will gain the ability to create mini-stories and turn them into video games he or she can play with friends. You’ll also receive a link that will allow you to follow and share your child’s weekly progress.
- Robotics & Science: During each session, your child will partner up with a classmate and have a blast putting real science and engineering concepts to use to build a LEGO® robot. After that, kids can put LEGO® Education’s award-winning WeDo™oftware to use to bring their “bot” to life for a little friendly competition with other teams.
- Math Edge: What our math skills program lacks in repetitive drills it makes up for in fun, interactive activities that help kids think independently and learn how to make math concepts stick. The result? Fun and friendship along with solid problem-solving skills and a lot more confidence.
