Successful engineers aren't just problem solvers: they have creativity and imagination. With Sylvan's Engineering courses in Washington, now is the time for future engineers to develop these important skills — and have fun with new friends as they do so! We appreciate that kids like to tinker with toys, gadgets and other devices to figure out how they work, so our sessions emphasize real challenges in mechanics and architecture. Working with a buddy, your child will build and test new structures every week, mastering 21st century STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) as they go. After all, it's so much easier to engage in learning if it happens to be great fun as well!

The Sylvan Experience

Your local Sylvan center in Washington has a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1 — and a maximum class size of 12 students per class —in order to ensure learning is both personal and attentive. We also consolidate that one-on-one attention with a varied assortment of collaborative and independent tasks, helping kids stay engaged (and motivated!) with a blend of learning methods that are proven to be effective.

Hands-On Learning

We think there's no better way to understand engineering concepts and principles than by using them to solve real-life challenges. That's why we present our students with new LEGO® and K'NEX® building activities every week. And once these creations have been built, students test them, enter them in friendly contests and tweak their design to include the new ideas and principles they've learned. In other words, you can expect us to guide and engage the aspiring architect, engineer or mechanic in your life — and you can also expect bridges, race cars and other exciting projects to dominate conversations in your home!

Let's get creative! Our Engineering courses in Washington feature:

  • Handy projects: We know all about app-based learning, but this is all about learning by doing.
  • STEM concepts: You can never be too young to start learning vital 21st century competencies.
  • Collaboration: Students partner up to take on challenges and develop stronger interpersonal skills.
  • Frequent updates: After each session we'll contact you via email with photos, summaries and a brief look ahead to the next project.
