Engineers need strong technical abilities and know-how, as well as creative problem-solving skills and plenty of imagination. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in Montana, now is the time for future engineers to develop these important skills — and have fun with new friends as they do so! We know how kids love to tinker with toys, gadgets and other devices, so we focus our sessions around real mechanical and architectural challenges. Working with a buddy, your child will build and test new structures every week, mastering 21st century STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) as they go. After all, there's no reason why learning can't be fun and engaging!
Discover the Sylvan Difference
Your local Sylvan center in Montana makes learning personal with classes of no more than 12 students and a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1. We also blend a variety of collaborative activities with different self-guided tasks, helping kids stay motivated with a range of proven learning techniques.▼
We Make Learning More Hands-On
There's no better way to learn engineering concepts than by applying them to real-life challenges. That's why our weekly sessions task students to design and build new and exciting LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures. And they don't only build them: they also test them, enter them into friendly competitions and redesign them using the new principles they've learned. In other words, the budding mechanic, engineer or architect in your life will always be fully supported, motivated and engaged at Sylvan — so don't be surprised when your son or daughter can't stop talking about bridges, race cars and other exciting hands-on projects!
