You'll find that your local Sylvan in the Washington, DC region isn't just a place where children develop valuable STEM skills; it's also where confidence grows, friendships are made and kids have a blast working on fun projects. Where else could your son or daughter get the chance to program a LEGO® robot for a friendly competition against classmates—or create his or her very own video game? Developing tech-focused skills has never been cooler.
Programs We Offer in the Washington, DC region:
- Engineering: The sky’s the limit on fun when your child is busy constructing intricate machines with LEGO® and sprawling bridges with K’NEX®. These creative projects get kids to start thinking like real engineers.
- Coding: Kids love computer animations and video games, which is exactly what makes our coding program so relevant—it’s a great way to capture interest and nurture creativity while focusing on modern computing techniques. Using innovative Tynker™ technology, your child will complete weekly projects that will show off his or her exciting progress.
- Robotics & Science: Building a LEGO® robot is cool enough as it is, but the real excitement begins—and the actual science and engineering concepts come into play—when your child has the chance to bring his or her creation to life with LEGO® Education’s award-winning WeDo™ programming software.
