Engineering demands not only strong problem-solving abilities, but also lots of creativity and imagination. Sylvan's Engineering courses in Nevada give budding engineers the chance to build these types of skills — and have a whole lot of fun as they do! Kids love to figure out how toys, gadgets and other devices work, so our sessions are built around real-life mechanical and architectural challenges. Every week, your child will partner with a friend to build, test and redesign structures, mastering important STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) along the way. After all, kids engage in learning a lot more when it happens to be fun and enjoyable too!
We Make a Real Difference
With a maximum of 12 students per class — and a student-teacher ratio of 6:1 — learning is a personal experience at your local Sylvan center in Nevada. We combine that personal attention with team activities and independent tasks, helping kids stay engaged and motivated with a diverse blend of learning methods.▼
We Make Learning More Hands-On
Engaging with practical, hands-on engineering challenges is the most effective way to master the most important concepts. Using LEGO® and K'NEX®, our students conceive and build new machines and structures 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!
It's time to get creative! Our Engineering courses in Nevada feature:
- Hands as well as minds: Interactive, app-based learning is great, but this program is all about getting hands-on — and learning by doing.
- Emphasis on STEM: The modern world demands modern skills, so now is the time for your child to develop vital 21st century competencies.
- Teamwork: Students work with buddies, learning how to collaborate and build strong personal communication skills.
- Regular updates: We'll email you after each session with photos, summaries and a sneak peek of next week's project.
