Reach the Next Level with STEM
STEM has a reputation for being an area where the brightest minds achieve the most innovative and cutting-edge things – and our STEM programs are no exception. Sylvan EDGE gives kids the opportunity to get hands-on experience in a variety of exciting activities, like designing their very own video game and programming a robot to enter into friendly competition against other kids. You can rest easy knowing your child will develop 21st century skills, make new friends and have plenty of exciting tales for the journey home!
In Tennessee, Sylvan EDGE Programs Include:
- Coding: By creating characters, sounds, special effects and animations using innovative Tynker™ technology, our coding program helps kids develop solid problem solving, logic and computational skills. Your child will learn essential skills for turning their ideas into a real video game he or she can play with friends. You’ll also be able to check out your child’s progress with a link to their weekly project.
- Robotics & Science: In each session, your child will team up with a classmate to build a LEGO® robot, having fun and using real science and engineering concepts along the way. Once it’s done, kids will use LEGO® Education’s award-winning WeDo™ software to bring the “bot” to life and enter it into competition against other teams.
- Engineering: Engineers have the ability to change the world—one idea at a time. It’s important to give kids fun experiences with engineering early, so they’ll be inspired to think big later on. Kids will spend time on challenging hands-on activities, such as designing bridges and building simple machines. The theme changes from session to session to keep kids inspired while they experiment with important STEM concepts.
- Math Edge: Our math skills program, which features a fun, interactive environment that encourages math concepts to stick, is a lot more than repetitive drills. The result? Increased confidence, stronger problem-solving skills and plenty of fun and friendship.
