Sylvan EDGE Programs in Vermont Include:
- Coding: By creating characters, sounds, special effects and animations using innovative Tynker™ technology, our coding program helps kids develop solid problem solving, logic and computational skills. Your child will learn essential skills for turning their ideas into a real video game he or she can play with friends. You’ll also be able to check out your child’s progress with a link to their weekly project.
- Robotics & Science: In each session, your child will team up with a classmate to build a LEGO® robot, having fun and using real science and engineering concepts along the way. Once it’s done, kids will use LEGO® Education’s award-winning WeDo™ software to bring the “bot” to life and enter it into competition against other teams.
- Engineering: Engineers have the ability to change the world—one idea at a time. It’s important to give kids fun experiences with engineering early, so they’ll be inspired to think big later on. Kids will spend time on challenging hands-on activities, such as designing bridges and building simple machines. The theme changes from session to session to keep kids inspired while they experiment with important STEM concepts.
- Math Edge: Our math skills program, which features a fun, interactive environment that encourages math concepts to stick, is a lot more than repetitive drills. The result? Increased confidence, stronger problem-solving skills and plenty of fun and friendship.
