With Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Tri-Cities region, learning is fun and exciting! 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 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 a fantastic way for your child to learn how to problem-solve just like an engineer and get equipped with 21st century skills in the process!
