The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Portland region. Your child will have an amazing time working on a different hands-on project every week, such as constructing cool machines or bridges using LEGO® bricks or K’NEX® pieces. 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 exciting way for your child to solve problems just like an engineer and develop valuable 21st century skills in the process!
A Real-World Education
In addition to offering big-time fun and excitement, Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Portland region also provide your child with opportunities to learn important STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) competencies. Through a combination of hands-on learning, teamwork and creative projects, your child will develop valuable critical thinking and problem solving abilities that can make a positive difference in school and beyond!▼
