The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Tri-Cities region. Your son or daughter will have a great time tackling a new interactive project each week, including building, testing and rebuilding 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. 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!

Think Like a Real Engineer!

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 fun and innovative way to help your eager inventor understand essential science, architectural and engineering concepts while getting creative and firing up his or her imagination in the process. Parents can also have fun learning about the cool new things students learned in class through our regular email communication. We will also provide a preview of the upcoming week’s project so you and your child can gear up for the next cool activity!

Here’s what you can expect:

  • Practical, hands-on projects that range from designing machines using LEGO® bricks to building different bridge types with K’NEX® pieces.
  • A 21st century education designed to equip your child with STEM skills.
  • An intimate classroom setting, including a 6:1 student-to-teacher ratio and no more than 12 students per class.
