If your son or daughter is obsessed with building structures and tinkering with gadgets, it's time to learn more about Sylvan's Engineering programs in Niles. Our sessions focus on fun and friendship, helping kids fire up their creativity as they explore important engineering concepts. Buddying up with a partner, kids take on a new project each session, such as designing and building one of seven possible bridge types using K’NEX® pieces or constructing a machine with LEGO® bricks. There’s no better way for your child to develop 21st century competencies he or she will need for success in the classroom and beyond!
In Niles, our Engineering programs teach:
- Hands-on learning that allows kids to get creative with LEGO® machines and K’NEX® structures.
- A STEM-based curriculum that reflects the growing importance of 21st century skills.
- The fun, camaraderie and teamwork of collaborative projects.
- Wrap-up activities that ensure the session's most important concepts are reinforced.
