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 will give kids the chance to get hands-on experience with things like designing their own video games and programming real robots to enter into friendly competition with classmates. You can rest easy knowing your child is developing 21st century skills and also making great friends along the way!
In Nebraska, Sylvan EDGE Programs Include:
- Robotics & Sciences: During each session, your child will work with a partner to build a LEGO® robot, putting real science and engineering concepts to use (and having fun!) along the way. Then the “bot” can be brought to life using LEGO® Education’s award-winning WeDo™ software and entered into friendly competition against other teams.
- Engineering: Engineers have the potential to change the world-- one idea at a time. The key is to make sure kids have positive experiences with engineering at a young age, so they’re inspired to think big. Kids complete fun, hands-on challenges, like building simple machines or designing bridges. Every session has a different theme to inspire kids to be creative as they experiment with STEM concepts.
- Coding: Using kid-friendly Tynker™ technology, our program helps kids develop strong problem-solving, logic and computational skills as they create characters, sounds, special effects and animations. Your child will come up with mini-stories and learn the skills to design a video game to play with friends. You’ll also receive a link to your child’s weekly project so you can share his or her exciting progress with everyone you know.
- Math Edge: Our math skills program is more than repetitive drills—its fun, interactive format helps kids think independently and encourages difficult math concepts to stick. The result? Better problem-solving skills and more confidence, not to mention a whole lot of fun and friendship.
