The Coolest After-School Activities
In the Philadelphia region, your local Sylvan is not only a place where your child can cultivate valuable STEM skills; it’s also a place for developing confidence, making new friends and working on fun projects. Where else could your little one get the chance to design create his or her very own video game—or program a LEGO® robot to enter into friendly competitions? Developing tech-focused skills has never been cooler.
Our Programs in the Philadelphia region Include:
- Coding: Since kids love video games and computer animations, our coding program is not only relevant, but it’s also a great way to foster creativity through a variety of modern computing techniques. Weekly projects, using innovative Tynker™ technology, are a great way for your child to show off his or her exciting progress.
- Engineering: Whether your child is constructing soaring bridges with K’NEX® or building working machines with LEGO®, the fun never stops! Creative projects like these and more encourage kids to think like real engineers.
- Robotics: As if building a LEGO® robot wasn’t cool enough, your child will also have the chance to put real science and engineering concepts to use by bringing his or her creation to life using LEGO® Education’s award-winning WeDo™ programming software.
- Math Edge: Despite math having a reputation for not being the most exciting subject, our after-school program can offer an alternative to the boring drills and exercises with plenty of challenging—and fun—activities that will help your child thrive in the classroom and beyond.
