STEM skills — science, technology, engineering and math — are increasingly important for career success in Erie and beyond. That's why we've tailored our after-school STEM programs to be engaging and interactive, helping kids get on the right path for high-demand careers — and have a blast doing it! In fact, Sylvan EDGE's combination of fun and academic mastery is unique, whether it's designing a video game from scratch, coding a LEGO® robot or engineering seriously cool super structures. In addition, we emphasize collaboration and camaraderie, which means students use teamwork and meet new friends while they progress. Learn how your child can gain a valuable edge for the future when he or she attends your local Sylvan in Erie.

Our EDGE Programs Include:

  • Robotics & Sciences: Your child will build robots and confidence with our innovative robotics program in which students construct and program LEGO® robots.
  • Coding: High-fives and exciting stories are the natural result of our coding program, which features super cool projects like designing animations, video games and mini-stories.
  • Engineering: Buildings, bridges and race cars don't design themselves: they need engineers! Your child will enjoy hands-on challenges and learn how to build simple machines.
  • Math Edge: Math is a crucial component of all STEM subjects, so we make it more interactive and exciting (yes, really!) than ever. In fact, our brain-boosting tasks, puzzles and challenges enable kids to develop math abilities they can use at school and in everyday life.
