Engineering takes creativity, imagination and great problem-solving abilities. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in North Carolina, there's never been a better time for budding engineers to enhance these skills — and have a blast doing it! Kids love to figure out how toys, gadgets and other devices work, so we tailor our sessions to explore real-world challenges in architecture and mechanics. 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, learning is so much more engaging when it's a whole lot of fun as well!
What to Expect at Sylvan
With a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1 — and no more than 12 students per class — your local Sylvan center in North Carolina 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.▼
Getting Hands-On with Important Concepts
We think there's no better way to understand engineering concepts and principles than by using them to solve real-life challenges. That's why our weekly sessions task students to design and build new and exciting LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures. That's why generations of families have turned to Sylvan to lay the foundations for future success. In other words, we're here to support, engage and excite the young engineer, mechanic or architect in your life — so don't be surprised if bridges, race cars and other projects become the topic of conversation in your home!
