The fun begins with Sylvan’s Engineering programs in the Seattle and Tacoma region. Your child will have an amazing time working on a different hands-on project every week, such as constructing cool machines or bridges using LEGO® bricks or K’NEX® pieces. Watch your child’s creativity take flight as he or she builds these complex structures with a partner and participates in fun games and friendly challenges against other teams. Equipping your child with these skills can help make a big impact not only in school and college, but also in future careers.
21st Century Learning
It’s no secret that Sylvan’s Engineering courses in the Seattle and Tacoma region are fun, but did you know that they also help equip your child with valuable STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills? Via hands-on projects and collaborative group work, your son or daughter will acquire important critical thinking and problem solving abilities that can make a positive impact both inside and outside of the classroom.▼
Is There an Aspiring Engineer in Your Family?
From figuring out how to design complex structures to testing and tweaking them in order to come up with an improved solution, your child will be tackling problems just like a real engineer! Our interactive courses are a great way for your aspiring inventor to get to grips with science, engineering and architectural concepts while activating his or her creativity and imagination in the process. Parents can join in on the fun too: we send out regular email communication to keep you in the loop every week.
