Sylvan’s Engineering courses in the Portland region make learning fun! Your son or daughter can expect to complete a different hands-on project each week, including designing, testing and tweaking bridges and machines using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. Your child’s creativity will soar to new levels as he or she works with a buddy to put together these unique creations and challenges other students to friendly games and competitions. Equipping your child with these skills can help make a big impact not only in school and college, but also in future careers.
