Engineering takes creativity, imagination and great problem-solving abilities. Sylvan's Engineering courses in North Dakota give budding engineers the chance to build these types of skills — and have a whole lot of fun as they do! Kids love to figure out how toys, gadgets and other devices work, so our sessions are built around real-life mechanical and architectural challenges. Your child will work with a buddy to build and redesign different structures every week, getting to grips with crucial concepts in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) along the way. After all, there's no reason why learning can't be fun and engaging!
We Make a Real Difference
With a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1 — and no more than 12 students per class — your local Sylvan center in North Dakota 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.▼
We Make Learning More Hands-On
Getting hands-on with real-world engineering challenges is the best way to master the fundamentals. Using LEGO® and K'NEX®, our students conceive and build new machines and structures every week. And they don't only build objects: they also learn how to test them, compete in friendly classroom competitions, and redesign their creations using all the principles they've mastered. In other words, the future mechanic, architect or engineer in your life is sure to be engaged and excited at Sylvan — just don't be surprised if dinner conversation is dominated by bridges, race cars and other hands-on projects!
