Engineers need to be problem solvers with plenty of creativity and imagination. With engineering courses in Oklahoma from Sylvan, it's a great time for budding engineers to work on these skills — and have an unforgettably fun experience as they do so! Kids love to work out what makes toys, gadgets and devices tick, so our sessions are tailored to explore and examine real 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, kids find it a lot easier to engage with learning if they’re having fun at the same time!
The Sylvan Experience
With no more than 12 students in each class and a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1, you can expect a personal and attentive learning experience at your local Sylvan in Oklahoma. To that personal attention we add a mix of collaborative tasks and self-directed activities, helping to motivate and engage kids with a variety of proven learning techniques.
Engaging Young Minds and Hands
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 weekly sessions task students to design and build new and exciting LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures. 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, you can expect us to guide and engage the aspiring architect, engineer or mechanic in your life — and you can also expect bridges, race cars and other exciting projects to dominate conversations in your home!
Let's get creative! Our Engineering courses in Oklahoma feature:
- STEM-based learning: Now is the time for your child to start developing competencies that are increasingly important in the 21st century.
- Hands as well as minds: We know when to integrate the latest app-based learning methods, but this program is all about getting hands-on.
- Teamwork: Students work together to complete tasks and improve their personal communication skills.
- Regular emails: We know you want to stay up to date with your child's progress, so we'll email you photos and summaries after each session — as well as a special look ahead to the next project.
