Engineers need strong technical abilities and know-how, as well as creative problem-solving skills and plenty of imagination. Sylvan's Engineering courses in New Hampshire 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 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, it's so much easier to engage in learning if it happens to be great fun as well!
The Sylvan 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 in New Hampshire. We combine that personal attention with team activities and independent tasks, helping kids stay engaged and motivated with a diverse blend of learning methods.▼
It's Time to Get Hands-On
There's simply no better way to master the fundamentals of engineering than by applying them to real-life tasks and challenges. Using LEGO® and K'NEX®, our students conceive and build new machines and structures every week. 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. In other words, you can expect us to guide and engage the aspiring architect, engineer or mechanic in your life — and you can also expect bridges, race cars and other exciting projects to dominate conversations in your home!
