Engineering demands not only strong problem-solving abilities, but also lots of creativity and imagination. 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, learning doesn't feel like a frustration when it's a lot of fun at the same time!
We Make a Real Difference
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 Mexico. We combine that personal attention with team activities and independent tasks, helping kids stay engaged and motivated with a diverse blend of learning methods.▼
Getting Hands-On with Important Concepts
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 weekly sessions are based around designing and building LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures. And the building part is only the start: students learn how to test their creations, entering them in friendly contests against competing teams and implementing the new design principles they've mastered. 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!
Creativity is a defining feature of our Engineering courses in New Mexico, which also include:
- Hands-on sessions: Many of our programs are based around the latest interactive, app-based learning — but this is all about getting practical and learning by doing.
- STEM-first learning: The modern world needs people with modern skills, so there's no better time for your child to start building a skill set fit for the 21st century.
- Teamwork: Collaborative tasks help students learn how to work together and communicate more effectively.
- Email updates: We'll send you an email after each session with photos and summaries, as well as a preview of upcoming projects.
