Successful engineers aren't just problem solvers: they have creativity and imagination. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in Oklahoma, young engineers have a great opportunity to enhance these skills — and have fun while they do 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. 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!
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 Oklahoma 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
There's no better way to learn engineering concepts than by applying them to real-life challenges. That's why our students design and build LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures each and every week. And the learning doesn't end once building is finished: students also learn how to test their creations, entering them in friendly contests and redesigning them according to the new principles learned. 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!
