Engineering takes creativity, imagination and great problem-solving abilities. With engineering courses in Vermont from Sylvan, it's a great time for budding engineers to work on these skills — and have an unforgettably fun experience as they do so! We appreciate that kids like to tinker with toys, gadgets and other devices to figure out how they work, so our sessions emphasize real challenges in mechanics and architecture. Every week, your child will partner with a friend to build, test and redesign structures, mastering important STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) along the way. After all, kids engage in learning a lot more when it happens to be fun and enjoyable too!
Discover the Sylvan Difference
Your local Sylvan in Vermont makes learning personal with classes of no more than 12 students and a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1. We also blend a variety of collaborative activities with different self-guided tasks, helping kids stay motivated with a range of proven learning techniques.
It's Time to Get Hands-On
Engaging with practical, hands-on engineering challenges is the most effective way to master the most important concepts. That's why our students design and build LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures each and every week. And the building part is only the start: students learn how to test their creations, entering them in friendly contests against competing teams and implementing the new design principles they've mastered. In other words, the future mechanic, architect or engineer in your life is sure to be engaged and excited at Sylvan — just don't be surprised if dinner conversation is dominated by bridges, race cars and other hands-on projects!
