Engineering demands not only strong problem-solving abilities, but also lots 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. 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, it's so much easier to engage in learning if it happens to be great fun as well!

The Sylvan Experience

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 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.

Let's Get 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 it doesn't end with the building: students discover how to test their creations, redesign them using the principles they've learned, and take part in friendly competitions with classmates' constructions. Very simply, our goal is to guide and motivate your budding engineer, mechanic or architect — so you shouldn't be surprised when race cars, bridges and other engaging projects become your son or daughter's preferred topic of conversation!

Let's get creative! Our Engineering courses in Nevada feature:

  • Handy projects: We know all about app-based learning, but this is all about learning by doing.
  • STEM concepts: You can never be too young to start learning vital 21st century competencies.
  • Collaboration: Students partner up to take on challenges and develop stronger interpersonal skills.
  • Frequent updates: After each session we'll contact you via email with photos, summaries and a brief look ahead to the next project.
