Sylvan’s Engineering courses in the Albany, Schenactedy and Troy region make learning fun! Your child will love getting hands on with a different project every week, like building, testing and modifying a machine or bridge using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. Your child will get those creative juices flowing as he or she teams up with a buddy to build these awesome structures and challenges other teams 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!
