With Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Philadelphia region, learning is fun and exciting! Each and every week, your child will dive into a cool new project, such as designing, building and testing a machine or bridge using LEGO® bricks or K’NEX® pieces. Your child’s creativity will soar to new levels as he or she works with a buddy to put together these unique creations and challenges other students to friendly games and competitions. Equipping your child with these skills can help make a big impact not only in school and college, but also in future careers.
A 21st Century Education
Beyond being big on fun, our Engineering programs in the Philadelphia region are also designed to equip your child with valuable STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) abilities. Through creative activities, immersive learning and group collaboration, your child will build valuable problem solving and critical thinking competencies that can make a lasting impact both academically and personally!▼
Is Your Child a Budding Engineer?
From building sophisticated structures to testing, deconstructing and redesigning them all over again with a better solution, your child will be thinking and problem solving like a real engineer! Our hands-on programs are a fantastic way for your budding inventor to gain a solid grasp of engineering, science and architectural concepts while also igniting his or her imagination and creativity along the way. We also get parents in on the fun by providing regular email communication to fill you in on the cool new projects your child worked on each week. We also preview the following week’s project via email so you and your child can get excited for the next session!
