The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Portland region. Your child will love getting hands on with a different project every week, like building, testing and modifying a machine or bridge using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. Watch your child’s creativity take flight as he or she builds these complex structures with a partner and participates in fun games and friendly challenges against other teams. It’s an innovative way for your child to think and problem-solve just like an engineer while developing crucial 21st century skills along the way!
