Engineers need to be problem solvers with plenty of creativity and imagination. There's never been a better time for future engineers to develop these skills — and have a blast doing it — with Sylvan's Engineering courses in Nevada. 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
With a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1 — and no more than 12 students per class — your local Sylvan in Nevada 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.
Getting Hands-On with Important Concepts
Engaging with practical, hands-on engineering challenges is the most effective way to master the most important concepts. That's why our students design and build LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures each and every week. And the building part is only the start: students learn how to test their creations, entering them in friendly contests against competing teams and implementing the new design principles they've mastered. In other words, you can count on us to engage, support and excite the budding engineer, architect or mechanic in your family — so expect race cars, bridges and other stimulating projects to become the main topic of conversation during your car rides together!
Our Engineering courses in Nevada focus on creativity, and also feature:
- Practical tasks: We understand how to deliver the very latest app-based learning, but this program is all about learning by doing.
- STEM teaching: As STEM skills become increasingly important in the modern world, now is the time for your child to start developing strong 21st century competencies.
- Teamwork: Buddying up to take on challenges, students learn how to work together and enhance their personal communication skills.
- Weekly updates: We'll email you photos and summaries after each session, as well as a peek at next week's project.
