The Coolest After-School Activities

You'll find that your local Sylvan in the Rochester region isn't just a place where children develop valuable STEM skills; it's also where confidence grows, friendships are made and kids have a blast working on fun projects. Where else could your son or daughter get the chance to program a LEGO® robot for a friendly competition against classmates—or create his or her very own video game? There’s no better way to develop tech-focused skills that will enhance future opportunities.

Our Programs in the Rochester region:

  • Coding: Since kids love video games and computer animations, our coding program is not only relevant, but it’s also a great way to foster creativity through a variety of modern computing techniques. Weekly projects, using innovative Tynker™ technology, are a great way for your child to show off his or her exciting progress.
  • Engineering: Whether your child is constructing soaring bridges with K’NEX® or building working machines with LEGO®, the fun never stops! Creative projects like these and more encourage kids to think like real engineers.
  • Robotics: As if building a LEGO® robot wasn’t cool enough, your child will also have the chance to put real science and engineering concepts to use by bringing his or her creation to life using LEGO® Education’s award-winning WeDo™ programming software.
  • Math Edge: Despite math having a reputation for not being the most exciting subject, our after-school program can offer an alternative to the boring drills and exercises with plenty of challenging—and fun—activities that will help your child thrive in the classroom and beyond.
