Our Engineering programs in the Houston region are huge on fun! Your child will have an amazing time working on a different hands-on project every week, such as constructing cool machines or 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 novel way for your son or daughter to develop critical 21st century skills while solving problems just like an engineer!
21st Century Learning
In addition to offering big-time fun and excitement, Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Houston 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!▼
Think Like a Real Engineer!
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 can join in on the fun too: we send out regular email communication to keep you in the loop every week. We’ll also preview the following week’s project so you and your child can gear up for the next fun activity!
