The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Roanoke and Lynchburg region. Each and every week, your child will dive into a cool new project, such as designing, building and testing a machine or bridge 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 an exciting way for your child to solve problems just like an engineer and develop valuable 21st century skills in the process!
