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 take flight as he or she builds these complex structures with a partner and participates in fun games and friendly challenges against other teams. Equipping your child with these skills can help make a big impact not only in school and college, but also in future careers.
