The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Hampton Roads – Newport News, Chesapeake, Virginia Beach region. Your child will have an amazing time working on a different hands-on project every week, such as constructing cool machines or bridges using LEGO® bricks or K’NEX® pieces. Watch your child’s creativity take flight as he or she builds these complex structures with a partner and participates in fun games and friendly challenges against other teams. It’s a novel way for your son or daughter to develop critical 21st century skills while solving problems just like an engineer!
