Successful engineers aren't just problem solvers: they have creativity and imagination. With engineering courses in New Jersey from Sylvan, it's a great time for budding engineers to work on these skills — and have an unforgettably fun experience as they do so! We know how kids love to tinker with toys, gadgets and other devices, so we focus our sessions around real mechanical and architectural challenges. Every week, your child will partner with a friend to build, test and redesign structures, mastering important STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) along the way. After all, learning doesn't feel like a frustration when it's a lot of fun at the same time!

The Sylvan Experience

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 Jersey. We combine that personal attention with team activities and independent tasks, helping kids stay engaged and motivated with a diverse blend of learning methods.

We Make Learning More Hands-On

The most effective way to understand critical engineering concepts is to use them to overcome real-life challenges. That's why our students are presented with new and exciting LEGO® and K'NEX® building activities each week. And it doesn't end with the building: students discover how to test their creations, redesign them using the principles they've learned, and take part in friendly competitions with classmates' constructions. In other words, the future mechanic, architect or engineer in your life is sure to be engaged and excited at Sylvan — just don't be surprised if dinner conversation is dominated by bridges, race cars and other hands-on projects!

Creative learning starts here! Our Engineering courses in New Jersey feature:

  • STEM-based learning: Now is the time for your child to start developing competencies that are increasingly important in the 21st century. 
  • Hands as well as minds: We know when to integrate the latest app-based learning methods, but this program is all about getting hands-on.
  • Teamwork: Students work together to complete tasks and improve their personal communication skills.
  • Regular emails: We know you want to stay up to date with your child's progress, so we'll email you photos and summaries after each session — as well as a special look ahead to the next project.
