Sylvan’s Engineering courses in the Austin region make learning fun! Your child will have a blast diving into a new hands-on project each week, like designing, testing and redesigning machines and bridges using LEGO® bricks or K’NEX® pieces. Watch your child’s creativity reach new heights as he or she builds these cool creations with a buddy and challenges other teams to fun competitions. 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!
21st Century Programs
In addition to offering big-time fun and excitement, Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Austin region also provide your child with opportunities to learn important STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) competencies. Through a combination of hands-on learning, teamwork and creative projects, your child will develop valuable critical thinking and problem solving abilities that can make a positive difference in school and beyond!▼
Aspiring Engineers Unite!
From figuring out how to design complex structures to testing and tweaking them in order to come up with an improved solution, your child will be tackling problems just like a real engineer! Our hands-on programs are a fantastic way for your budding inventor to gain a solid grasp of engineering, science and architectural concepts while also igniting his or her imagination and creativity along the way. Parents are kept in the loop through our regular email communication, so you can see your child’s progress and celebrate his or her achievements. We also preview the following week’s project via email so you and your child can get excited for the next session!
