The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Hampton Roads – Newport News, Chesapeake, Virginia Beach region. Your child will love getting hands on with a different project every week, like building, testing and modifying a machine or bridge using K’NEX® pieces or LEGO® bricks. Your child will get those creative juices flowing as he or she teams up with a buddy to build these awesome structures and challenges other teams to friendly games and competitions. It’s an innovative way for your child to think and problem-solve just like an engineer while developing crucial 21st century skills along the way!
