With Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Philadelphia region, learning is fun and exciting! Your son or daughter can expect to complete a different hands-on project each week, including designing, testing and tweaking bridges and machines using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks.

It’s a fantastic way for your child to learn how to problem-solve just like an engineer and get equipped with 21st century skills in the process!
