The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Knoxville region. 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. Watch your child’s creativity reach new heights as he or she builds these cool creations with a buddy and challenges other teams to fun competitions. It’s an innovative way for your child to think and problem-solve just like an engineer while developing crucial 21st century skills along the way!
