Engineering takes creativity, imagination and great problem-solving abilities. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in New Mexico, young engineers have a great opportunity to enhance these skills — and have fun while they do it! Kids love to work out what makes toys, gadgets and devices tick, so our sessions are tailored to explore and examine real mechanical and architectural challenges. Each week, your child will buddy up with a friend to learn important STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) by building, testing and redesigning various structures and objects. After all, kids engage in learning a lot more when it happens to be fun and enjoyable too!
We Make a Real Difference
With a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1 — and no more than 12 students per class — your local Sylvan center in New Mexico is where learning gets personal. We also combine that one-on-one attention with collaborative activities and self-guided tasks, helping kids stay engaged with a mix of proven learning methods.▼
It's Time to Get Hands-On
There's simply no better way to master the fundamentals of engineering than by applying them to real-life tasks and challenges. That's why our students are presented with new and exciting LEGO® and K'NEX® building activities each week. And they don't only build them: they also test them, enter them into friendly competitions and redesign them using the new principles they've learned. In other words, you can expect us to guide and engage the aspiring architect, engineer or mechanic in your life — and you can also expect bridges, race cars and other exciting projects to dominate conversations in your home!
Let's get creative! Our Engineering courses in New Mexico feature:
- Hands as well as minds: Interactive, app-based learning is great, but this program is all about getting hands-on — and learning by doing.
- Emphasis on STEM: The modern world demands modern skills, so now is the time for your child to develop vital 21st century competencies.
- Teamwork: Students work with buddies, learning how to collaborate and build strong personal communication skills.
- Regular updates: We'll email you after each session with photos, summaries and a sneak peek of next week's project.
