Engineers need to be problem solvers with plenty of creativity and imagination. With engineering courses in Wisconsin 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 we tailor our sessions to explore real-world challenges in architecture and mechanics. Your child will work with a buddy to build and redesign different structures every week, getting to grips with crucial concepts in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) along the way. After all, there's no reason why learning can't be fun and engaging!
We Make a Real Difference
With a maximum student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1 — and no more than 12 students per class — your local Sylvan center in Wisconsin is where learning gets personal. We also combine that one-on-one attention with collaborative activities and self-guided tasks, helping kids stay engaged with a mix of proven learning methods.▼
Engaging Young Minds and Hands
There's no better way to learn engineering concepts than by applying them to real-life challenges. That's why our students design and build LEGO® machines and K'NEX® structures each and every week. 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, the budding mechanic, engineer or architect in your life will always be fully supported, motivated and engaged at Sylvan — so don't be surprised when your son or daughter can't stop talking about bridges, race cars and other exciting hands-on projects!
