STEM skills — science, technology, engineering and math — are increasingly important for career success in Cookeville and beyond. For that reason, we provide after-school STEM programs that are not only engaging and interactive, but help kids prepare for growing, high-demand careers — and have a blast at the same time! Sylvan EDGE provides a unique combination of fun and academic mastery with activities like programming LEGO® robots, creating video games using our cool technology platform, and designing super structures. Because we also focus on teamwork, kids are encouraged to make new friends and collaborate while they make progress. Learn how your child can gain a valuable edge for the future when he or she attends your local Sylvan in Cookeville.

Our EDGE Programs Include:

  • Robotics & Science: Your child will be building more than just his or her own working LEGO® robot in our cutting-edge robotics program — building friendships and confidence are also an important part of the package.
  • Coding: Our coding program, which gives your child the chance to develop his or her own video game and computer animations, will guarantee kids leave with plenty of exciting stories to tell.
  • Engineering: If skyscrapers, bridges and race cars are going to continue to be a reality, the world needs the imagination and problem-solving skills of engineers. With fun, hands-on challenges, your child will develop a range of skills essential for his or her future.
  • Math Edge: Every STEM subject starts in the same place — with core math concepts. That’s why we’ve designed our program to make math more fun and interesting than you ever thought possible. Strengthening essential problem solving skills is easy with brainteasers, puzzles and regular proficiency challenges.
