Engineers need to be problem solvers with plenty of creativity and imagination. With engineering courses in Nevada from Sylvan, it's a great time for budding engineers to work on these skills — and have an unforgettably fun experience as they do so! Kids love to figure out how toys, gadgets and other devices work, so we tailor our sessions to explore real-world challenges in architecture and mechanics. Your child will work with a buddy to build and redesign different structures every week, getting to grips with crucial concepts in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) along the way. After all, there's no reason why learning can't be fun and engaging!
The Sylvan Difference
With no more than 12 students in each class and a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1, you can expect a personal and attentive learning experience at your local Sylvan center in Nevada. To that personal attention we add a mix of collaborative tasks and self-directed activities, helping to motivate and engage kids with a variety of proven learning techniques.▼
We Make Learning More Hands-On
Engaging with practical, hands-on engineering challenges is the most effective way to master the most important concepts. That's why our weekly sessions are based around designing and building LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures. And the learning doesn't end once building is finished: students also learn how to test their creations, entering them in friendly contests and redesigning them according to the new principles 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!
Our Engineering courses in Nevada focus on creativity, and also feature:
- Emphasis on STEM: As the modern world increasingly relies on people with strong STEM skill sets, it's never too early for your child to start developing 21st century competencies.
- Hands-on learning: Sylvan is no stranger to the very latest advances in interactive, app-based learning — but our Engineering courses are all about learning by doing.
- Collaboration: Students work together to enhance their ability to communicate with others and work as a team.
- Frequent updates: You'll learn about each session thanks to our weekly email updates, which include photos, summaries and a preview of the next project.
