Seriously Cool After-School Activities
You'll find that your local Sylvan in the Seattle and Tacoma 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? There’s no cooler way to develop tech-focused skills that will come in handy in future years.
Our Range of Enrichment Programs Includes:
- Math Edge: Even though math doesn’t exactly have a reputation or being fun, our after-school program does away with the typical boring drills in favor of engaging—and challenging—activities that develop essential math skills your child can apply in the classroom and beyond.
- Coding: Kids love video games and computer animations, making our coding program the perfect way for them to let their imaginations run wild while learning a variety of modern computing techniques. Exciting interactive weekly projects using innovative Tynker™ technology will give your child the opportunity to show off what he or she is learning.
- Engineering: When your child is working on projects like constructing machines that go, go, go out of LEGO and building sprawling bridges with K’NEX, the sky is the limit on fun! Those are just a couple of the creative challenges that will help kids start thinking like real engineers.
- Robotics: Even though building a LEGO® robot is cool enough as it is, your child will get to take things a step further and put real science and engineering concepts to use by bringing his or her creation to life with LEGO®’s award-winning WeDo™ programming software.
