The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Albany, Schenactedy and Troy region. 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. Your child’s creativity will soar to new levels as he or she works with a buddy to put together these unique creations and challenges other students to friendly games and competitions. It’s a novel way for your son or daughter to develop critical 21st century skills while solving problems just like an engineer!

Is Your Child a Budding Engineer?

From designing and building cool structures to tweaking and rebuilding them to test out a different approach, your child will be solving challenges just like a real engineer! Our hands-on programs are a fantastic way for your budding inventor to gain a solid grasp of engineering, science and architectural concepts while also igniting his or her imagination and creativity along the way. Parents won’t be missing out on the fun either: we send regular email communication so you can stay informed of your child’s progress. We’ll also send a sneak peek of next week’s project so your family can get excited for the next activity!
