Successful engineers aren't just problem solvers: they have creativity and imagination. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in Ohio, young engineers have a great opportunity to enhance these skills — and have fun while they do it! We know how kids love to tinker with toys, gadgets and other devices, so we focus our sessions around real mechanical and architectural challenges. Your child will team up with a buddy to build, test and optimize various objects and structures every week, mastering critical 21st century STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) along the way. After all, there's no reason why learning can't be fun and engaging!

The Sylvan Difference

With a maximum of 12 students per class — and a student-teacher ratio of 6:1 — learning is a personal experience at your local Sylvan in Ohio. We combine that personal attention with team activities and independent tasks, helping kids stay engaged and motivated with a diverse blend of learning methods.

Hands-On Learning

There's simply no better way to master the fundamentals of engineering than by applying them to real-life tasks and challenges. That's why our students design and build LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures each and 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, 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!

It's time to get creative! Our Engineering courses in Ohio feature:

  • Emphasis on STEM: As the modern world increasingly relies on people with strong STEM skill sets, it's never too early for your child to start developing 21st century competencies.
  • Hands-on learning: Sylvan is no stranger to the very latest advances in interactive, app-based learning — but our Engineering courses are all about learning by doing. 
  • Collaboration: Students work together to enhance their ability to communicate with others and work as a team.
  • Frequent updates: You'll learn about each session thanks to our weekly email updates, which include photos, summaries and a preview of the next project.
