Engineers need strong technical abilities and know-how, as well as creative problem-solving skills and plenty of imagination. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in New Hampshire, young engineers have a great opportunity to enhance these skills — and have fun while they do it! We know how kids love to tinker with toys, gadgets and other devices, so we focus our sessions around real mechanical and architectural challenges. 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, kids find it a lot easier to engage with learning if they’re having fun at the same time!
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 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.
Engaging Young Minds and Hands
Engaging with practical, hands-on engineering challenges is the most effective way to master the most important concepts. That's why we present our students with new LEGO® and K'NEX® building activities every week. And they don't only build objects: they also learn how to test them, compete in friendly classroom competitions, and redesign their creations using all the principles they've mastered. 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!
Creativity is a defining feature of our Engineering courses in New Hampshire, which also include:
- 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.
