Successful engineers aren't just problem solvers: they have 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! 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, kids find it a lot easier to engage with learning if they’re having fun at the same time!
What to Expect at Sylvan
Learning becomes a personal and attentive experience at your local Sylvan center in Oklahoma, where classes have no more than 12 students and the maximum student-to-teacher ratio is 6:1. We combine our one-on-one approach with a tailored blend of self-guided and collaborative tasks, helping kids stay interested and motivated with diverse learning methods.▼
Engaging Young Minds and Hands
The most effective way to understand critical engineering concepts is to use them to overcome real-life 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, the budding mechanic, engineer or architect in your life will always be fully supported, motivated and engaged at Sylvan — so don't be surprised when your son or daughter can't stop talking about bridges, race cars and other exciting hands-on projects!
Our Engineering courses in Oklahoma focus on creativity, and also 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.
