The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Abilene and Sweetwater region. Your son or daughter can expect to complete a different hands-on project each week, including designing, testing and tweaking bridges and machines using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. Watch your child’s creativity flourish and confidence soar as he or she teams up with a partner to build these cool structures and participates in fun games and friendly competitions with other students. 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!
