The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Raleigh-Durham region. 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. Watch your child’s creativity flourish and confidence soar as he or she teams up with a partner to build these cool structures and participates in fun games and friendly competitions with other students. Your child will be solving problems just like an engineer in no time — and developing vital 21st century skills too!

It’s no secret that Sylvan’s Engineering courses in the Raleigh-Durham region are fun, but did you know that they also help equip your child with valuable STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills? Via hands-on projects and collaborative group work, your son or daughter will acquire important critical thinking and problem solving abilities that can make a positive impact both inside and outside of the classroom.▼
