The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Tri-Cities region. 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. Your child will get those creative juices flowing as he or she teams up with a buddy to build these awesome structures and challenges other teams to friendly games and competitions. It’s a novel way for your son or daughter to develop critical 21st century skills while solving problems just like an engineer!
21st Century Programs
In addition to offering fun and memorable experiences, our Engineering courses in the Tri-Cities region help equip students with vital STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) abilities. Hands-on projects, creative activities and group learning all combine to help your child acquire crucial problem solving and critical thinking skills that can make a lasting impact, both in the classroom and beyond.▼
