It takes imagination, problem-solving and a great deal of creativity to be a successful engineer. There's never been a better time for future engineers to develop these skills — and have a blast doing it — with Sylvan's Engineering courses in South Carolina. Kids love to figure out how toys, gadgets and other devices work, so we tailor our sessions to explore real-world challenges in architecture and mechanics. Every week, students buddy up with friends to build structures, test them, and rebuild them better, learning vital STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) as part of the process. After all, kids engage in learning a lot more when it happens to be fun and enjoyable too!
The Sylvan Difference
Your local Sylvan in South Carolina makes learning personal with classes of no more than 12 students and a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1. We also blend a variety of collaborative activities with different self-guided tasks, helping kids stay motivated with a range of proven learning techniques.
Let's Get Hands-On
There's no better way to learn engineering concepts than by applying them to real-life challenges. That's why our students design and build LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures each and every week. And they don't only build objects: they also learn how to test them, compete in friendly classroom competitions, and redesign their creations using all the principles they've mastered. In other words, you can count on us to engage, support and excite the budding engineer, architect or mechanic in your family — so expect race cars, bridges and other stimulating projects to become the main topic of conversation during your car rides together!
It's time to get creative! Our Engineering courses in South Carolina feature:
- Practical tasks: We understand how to deliver the very latest app-based learning, but this program is all about learning by doing.
- STEM teaching: As STEM skills become increasingly important in the modern world, now is the time for your child to start developing strong 21st century competencies.
- Teamwork: Buddying up to take on challenges, students learn how to work together and enhance their personal communication skills.
- Weekly updates: We'll email you photos and summaries after each session, as well as a peek at next week's project.
