You’ll discover your local Sylvan in the Austin region isn’t just a place for your son or daughter to develop their STEM-based abilities; it’s also the perfect environment to cultivate confidence, build lasting friendships and have a great time working on fun projects. Where else could your little one program a LEGO® robot with a buddy and enter it in a friendly competition with other teams — or design, create and play his or her very own video game? There's no cooler way to gain tech-focused talents that will be a strong asset in future years.
Our Range of Enrichment Programs Includes:
- Engineering: The sky’s the limit on fun when your child is busy constructing intricate machines with LEGO® and sprawling bridges with K’NEX®. These creative projects get kids to start thinking like real engineers.
- Coding: Kids love computer animations and video games, which is exactly what makes our coding program so relevant—it’s a great way to capture interest and nurture creativity while focusing on modern computing techniques. Using innovative Tynker™ technology, your child will complete weekly projects that will show off his or her exciting progress.
- Robotics: Building a LEGO® robot is cool enough as it is, but the real excitement begins—and the actual science and engineering concepts come into play—when your child has the chance to bring his or her creation to life with LEGO® Education’s award-winning WeDo™ programming software.
- Math Edge: Math might not have a reputation for being the most exciting subject, but with our after-school program you can say goodbye to boring exercises and hello to engaging activities, challenging projects and a list of advanced math skills that can be utilized in the classroom and beyond.
