The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Philadelphia region. Your child will have a blast diving into a new hands-on project each week, like designing, testing and redesigning machines and bridges using LEGO® bricks or K’NEX® pieces. Watch your child’s creativity soar as he or she constructs these complex creations with a partner and challenges other teams to friendly games and competitions. It’s a novel way for your son or daughter to develop critical 21st century skills while solving problems just like an engineer!

Attention all Aspiring Engineers

From constructing multifaceted structures to testing and rebuilding them in order to try out a different solution, your son or daughter will be taking on challenges just like a real engineer! Our practical, hands-on courses are an amazing way for your budding inventor to understand important science, engineering and architectural concepts while also using his or her imagination and creativity. Parents won’t be missing out on the fun either: we send regular email communication so you can stay informed of your child’s progress. We’ll also preview the following week’s project so you and your child can gear up for the next fun activity!
