With Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Portland region, learning is fun and exciting! 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. Your child will get those creative juices flowing as he or she teams up with a buddy to build these awesome structures and challenges other teams to friendly games and competitions. It’s a novel way for your son or daughter to develop critical 21st century skills while solving problems just like an engineer!

Is Your Child a Budding Engineer?

From building sophisticated structures to testing, deconstructing and redesigning them all over again with a better solution, your child will be thinking and problem solving like a real engineer! Our immersive courses provide the ideal environment for your aspiring engineer to learn foundational science, architectural and engineering concepts while firing up his or her creativity and imagination throughout the process. We also keep parents informed by sending out regular communication, including a recap of each week’s project. We’ll also preview the following week’s project so you and your child can gear up for the next fun activity!
