With Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Harlingen, Weslaco, Brownsville and McAllen region, learning is fun and exciting! Each and every week, your child will dive into a cool new project, such as designing, building and testing a machine or bridge using LEGO® bricks or K’NEX® pieces. Watch your child’s creativity take flight as he or she builds these complex structures with a partner and participates in fun games and friendly challenges against other teams. Equipping your child with these skills can help make a big impact not only in school and college, but also in future careers.
