Successful engineers aren't just problem solvers: they have creativity and imagination. There's never been a better time for future engineers to develop these skills — and have a blast doing it — with Sylvan's Engineering courses in New York. We appreciate that kids like to tinker with toys, gadgets and other devices to figure out how they work, so our sessions emphasize real challenges in mechanics and architecture. Working with a buddy, your child will build and test new structures every week, mastering 21st century STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) as they go. After all, there's no reason why learning can't be fun and engaging!
The Sylvan Difference
With a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1 — and no more than 12 students per class — your local Sylvan in New York 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.▼
Let's Get Hands-On
Getting hands-on with real-world engineering challenges is the best way to master the fundamentals. That's why we present our students with new LEGO® and K'NEX® building activities every week. And once these creations have been built, students test them, enter them in friendly contests and tweak their design to include the new ideas and principles they've learned. Very simply, our goal is to guide and motivate your budding engineer, mechanic or architect — so you shouldn't be surprised when race cars, bridges and other engaging projects become your son or daughter's preferred topic of conversation!
Creativity is a defining feature of our Engineering courses in New York, which also include:
- Practical tasks: We understand how to deliver the very latest app-based learning, but this program is all about learning by doing.
- STEM teaching: As STEM skills become increasingly important in the modern world, now is the time for your child to start developing strong 21st century competencies.
- Teamwork: Buddying up to take on challenges, students learn how to work together and enhance their personal communication skills.
- Weekly updates: We'll email you photos and summaries after each session, as well as a peek at next week's project.
