With Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Springfield region, learning is fun and exciting! 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 soar as he or she constructs these complex creations with a partner and challenges other teams to friendly games and competitions. Your child will be solving problems just like an engineer in no time — and developing vital 21st century skills too!

Is There an Aspiring Engineer in Your Family?

From designing and building cool structures to tweaking and rebuilding them to test out a different approach, your child will be solving challenges just like a real engineer! Our immersive courses provide the ideal environment for your aspiring engineer to learn foundational science, architectural and engineering concepts while firing up his or her creativity and imagination throughout the process. 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’ll also preview the following week’s project so you and your child can gear up for the next fun activity!
