Sylvan’s Engineering courses in the Columbia region make learning fun! Each and every week, your child will dive into a cool new project, such as designing, building and testing a machine or bridge using LEGO® bricks or K’NEX® pieces. Watch your child’s creativity soar as he or she constructs these complex creations with a partner and challenges other teams to friendly games and competitions. It’s an exciting way for your child to solve problems just like an engineer and develop valuable 21st century skills in the process!
An Education Designed for the 21st Century
In addition to offering fun and memorable experiences, our Engineering courses in the Columbia region help equip students with vital STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) abilities. Hands-on projects, creative activities and group learning all combine to help your child acquire crucial problem solving and critical thinking skills that can make a lasting impact, both in the classroom and beyond.▼
Is There an Aspiring Engineer in Your Family?
From figuring out how to design complex structures to testing and tweaking them in order to come up with an improved solution, your child will be tackling problems just like a real engineer! Our hands-on programs are a fantastic way for your budding inventor to gain a solid grasp of engineering, science and architectural concepts while also igniting his or her imagination and creativity along the way. Parents can join in on the fun too: we send out regular email communication to keep you in the loop every week.
