Successful engineers aren't just problem solvers: they have creativity and imagination. With engineering courses in West Virginia from Sylvan, it's a great time for budding engineers to work on these skills — and have an unforgettably fun experience as they do so! Kids love to figure out how toys, gadgets and other devices work, so our sessions are built around real-life mechanical and architectural challenges. Your child will team up with a buddy to build, test and optimize various objects and structures every week, mastering critical 21st century STEM concepts (science, technology, engineering and math) along the way. After all, kids find it a lot easier to engage with learning if they’re having fun at the same time!
We're Here to Make a Real Difference
Your local Sylvan center in West Virginia makes learning personal with classes of no more than 12 students and a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1. We also blend a variety of collaborative activities with different self-guided tasks, helping kids stay motivated with a range of proven learning techniques.▼
It's Time to Get Hands-On
Getting hands-on with real-world engineering challenges is the best way to master the fundamentals. That's why our weekly sessions are based around designing and building LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures. And it doesn't end with the building: students discover how to test their creations, redesign them using the principles they've learned, and take part in friendly competitions with classmates' constructions. In other words, you can count on us to engage, support and excite the budding engineer, architect or mechanic in your family — so expect race cars, bridges and other stimulating projects to become the main topic of conversation during your car rides together!
Let's get creative! Our Engineering courses in West Virginia feature:
- Hands as well as minds: Interactive, app-based learning is great, but this program is all about getting hands-on — and learning by doing.
- Emphasis on STEM: The modern world demands modern skills, so now is the time for your child to develop vital 21st century competencies.
- Teamwork: Students work with buddies, learning how to collaborate and build strong personal communication skills.
- Regular updates: We'll email you after each session with photos, summaries and a sneak peek of next week's project.
